What are my rights as a tenant when my landlord files for bankruptcy?

Question Details:

Should I continue to pay rent and to who? If I pay the rent I can't afford to move as I did not pay a security deposit when I moved in. I was renting with the option to buy (on a land contract) but the landlord has an ARM on the house he can't afford to pay. He has tried to refinance without any success. I have 4 kids and a grandchild who live with me.
