Debt During Bankruptcy

I`m in the middle of a bankruptcy which will be discharged in June 2010. I was evicted from my apartment at the end of February 2010. The management company is coming after me for 2 months rent because I didn`t give them 60 days notice. I informed them of my bankruptcy and that I didn`t have any money. I`ve been struggling with illness and my income is erratic but I have kept up with my trustee payments. Can I get this debt included in my bankruptcy? Or is there any other alternative? The property management company won`t negotite and says they will go to court if necessary.

A bankruptcy can only protect you from debts owing at the time you filed the bankruptcy. If this back rent relates to prior to your filing of the bankruptcy then contact your trustee and have this creditor notified of the bankruptcy. However, if these amounts relate to the time period after filing then you are unfortunately responsible the amount be paid in full and the bankruptcy would have no impact on this.
