Yes, but the court may not allow the bankruptcy to be used to release the co-signer from the financial obligation.

What happens when a loan is cosigned and the borrowers file bankruptcy but the cosigner is deceased?

The loan would be part of the bankruptcy filing. I can't see how the death of the cosigner is significant. (In financial terms, that is.)

Is the borrower responsible for repayment of a vehicle loan two years after the cosigner filed bankruptcy and the vehicle was repossessed?

Yes, that's exactly how it works. If you'd paid for the vehicle at the time of the co-signers bakruptcy you could have kept the vehicle and improved your credit. The creditor wants you to either pay for the remainder of the note or file bankruptcy yourself. * A loan for a vehicle is considered a secured debt and is not dischargeable by the primary borrower(s) or cosigner(s) in bankruptcy action. All parties named on the loan agreement are responsible for the debt unless the SOL for the state in which the vehicle was either purchased or the debtor resides has expired.

If neither the borrower nor the cosigner have the money to pay back the loan, than bankruptcy is always an option for the cosigner. If you don't have the money, you don't have the money. However, be prepared to lose a good deal of your possessions and absolutely destroy your credit!

What are the rights of a cosigner when the primary filed bankruptcy then didnt pay the bankruptcy so the bankruptcy was dismissed?

As a cosigner, you are not at all protected if the primary signer files for bankruptcy. In many cases, filing for bankruptcy relieves the primary signer on the loan from his obligations towards the loan, at which point the lender will turn to the cosigner for payment. You'll either have to pay the loan or file for your own bankruptcy (if necessary).Unfortunately, you're stuck with the loan regardless of whether or not the primary signer successfully completes his bankruptcy filling. You may want to contact a bankruptcy lawyer for some additional advice or assistance.


Can you file bankruptcy on a loan for a vehicle?

Probably yes. The reason for the "probably" is that you don't file bankruptcy on specific loans... you file bankruptcy in general, and it applies to most debts (there are certain types of debts that are not dischargable in a bankruptcy). Note that if you do file bankruptcy, you may have to sell the vehicle. In bankruptcy you are often required to sell certain assets in an attempt to at least partially pay off your creditors; you're allowed to keep a certain amount of equity in a vehicle specifically, and a certain amount in "general assets" (which can be applied to a vehicle or to cash or other personal property), but if the vehicle is worth more than that, you would have to sell it.


2 homes with mortgage on both divorce and one files bankruptcy?

Was the bankruptcy before or after the divorce? I don't think it matters however, the bank can always go after the cosigner on a mortgage if they didn't file bankruptcy as well.
