Until the case is over, you shouldn't do anything with the car without permission from the court. If you owe money on the vehicle, you have a duty to maintain insurance and make the car payments. If the trustee abandons the car back to you, you can do whatever you want with the vehicle subject to any rights the lender might have.

This question is unanswerable without more context. What thing is being sold? What parts are the "riding on" parts?

This depends on what type of bankruptcy you are filing for. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is basically liquidation - all of the debtor's assets (besides those which are exempt) are sold to pay off his or her debts so you need to include everything. That being said, not everything will necessarily be discharged (i.e. child support and educational debt etc will remain with you after bankruptcy is completed).

No property can be sold, transferred, refinanced, etc. while in bankruptcy without the permission of the bankruptcy court.

Both and anyone else you can think about in the middle, because it removes any claims down the road for not providing proper notice.

With new bankruptcy laws that is no longer possible. If the person files for bankruptcy and includes the vehicle they will have to pay the entire amount of the loan.

Yes, this debt should have been marked as a bankruptcy by the original creditor. It cannot be changed from a bankruptcy to a discharge unless the bankruptcy did not go through.

Any leftover debt from that car repossession can be put in your bankruptcy petition..so if you owed $12k and the bank sold it for $6k..then you can file bankruptcy on the remaining $6k.

Sold is sold...so if the new owner wants to sell, sure..ut there is no right to.

Was the 2nd lien included in and discharged in your bankruptcy? If not, then that lien still encumbers the title to the property and is probably a debt you still owe.

What does selling my home have to do with your filing bankruptcy? If it was your home you sold short, assuming an arm's-length sale to a 3d party with no fraud or deception, you should not have a problem with filing bankruptcy.

There is something amiss here, a debt that is discharged in bankruptcy is no longer collectible. Therefore a lawsuit could not be filed and won nor a judgment awarded to the plaintiff pertaining to such a debt. The involved party should contact the attorney that handled the bankruptcy and have the judgment voided if it is indeed invalid. It would be advisable to acertain if the debt was discharged rather than excluded from the bankruptcy or perhaps sold previous to the filing of the petition.

It will depend on how the bankruptcy auction paperwork was filled out as to whether or not a person that holds the property can charge boarding and not release the livestock that was sold. Contact a local lawyer that knows your states and local laws regarding this issue.

If the property is sold for fair market value, yes.

You cannot sell your property during a bankruptcy proceeding. If a bona-fide offer is made to purchase the property a motion is filed for permission to sell. If allowed, an order is issued by the court that frees the property from the bankruptcy so it may be sold free and clear of your bankruptcy by the trustee. The proceeds from the sale will then be controlled by the trustee in bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy is a type of a last resort solution to out of control debt. There are a number of different types of bankruptcies which vary greatly. The law article below describes the different types of bankruptcy. The most common type is Chapter 7 bankruptcy which is a form of liquidation bankruptcy, in which non-exempt property is liquidated and sold to pay off your creditors

Yes but the trustee can seek to include the money received in your estate. If you have sold it to family or friends to avoid losing it in bankruptcy, the trustee can have the sale reversed.

If by settled, you mean get your car back, no, unless the bankruptcy was filed before the car was sold at auction (unlikely to be several months).

It's usually sold or auctioned off by the lienholder.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a final liquidation of the company. Assets are sold off to pay debt. Chapter 11 bankruptcy is a rehabilitation bankruptcy. The company (or individual) is given a chance to retain their assets and get their financial status back on firm footing.

yes, parts and rides of it have already been sold. :/

When filing bankruptcy all assets are placed in a bankruptcy estate. Some assets are allowed to be protected and qualify for an exemption by the trustee. Items that are placed in exemption are permitted to be sold, but the trustee should be notified prior to the sale.
