You can only keep the vehicle under two circumstances: (1) sign a reaffirmation agreement and keep making payments; or (2) redeem the vehicle by paying of the balalnce. If you fail to do either, they lender can get permission from the bankruptcy court to repossess the vehicle. In some states, such as Missouri, you may keep the vehicle if you continue to pay on it.

If you don't have a lawyer, send it by certified mail, return receipt and by regular mail, and make sure you keep a copy for yourself.

What are the debtor's obligations if Arizona chapter 7 secured interest is listed on car with intent to make payments no reaffirmation agreement is signed and car payment is missed and car repossessed?

If the lender repossessed the car while case was pending and you were protected by the automatic stay, the repossession was illegal and you should be able to get the park back by filing the proper motion with the court. If the case is over, you need to make the payments and have adequate insurance to keep the car if you did not sign a reaffirmation agreement. If they legally repossessed the vehicle and sold it, you are out of luck but you are free from paying any deficiency. Consult an Arizona attonrey to determine if the seizure was legal under the laws of your state.
