Bankruptcy does not "clear" anything. Also, filing a BK will not stop an eviction process. If you have a good faith defense to the eviction, there is a process for an expedited hearing in the BK court re the eviction.

This depends on what you mean by 'clear,' which is not a word usually used in this context. Do you mean will it somehow cancel an eviction? Not necessarily, but you'll have to reach an agreement with the landlord on payments to catch up within the first 60 days after filing-that is, IF there is not yet an eviction order from the Court as of the date you file your BR petition. The eviction remains part of the court and credit records, which are historical. The landlord, however, cannot collect any overdue rent during the course of the BR, except as part of a cure of the debt arrearage.

A bankruptcy will eliminate any debts due from the eviction. But it will not remove the eviction from your credit record.
