When you file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you have the option to keep your home and 1 vehicle. If you are able to make the last 2 payments on the car, you can keep it and not include it in the bankruptcy.

If you have hidden the car until the payments are current can they still repossess?

As long as the contract is in default, the lender can repossess the collateral. Which would mean no? correct?? If the payments have became current the loan would no longer be in default? I am I right or wrong? You are wrong if the bank has already sent you a "notice of right to cure default" demanding full payment of the loan. Then they may (probably will)consider all the caught-up payments as part of that full payment and you have not satisfied the default. I guess it depend what state you are in, because I know in MD you can have the right ot get the car back one time, by simply becoming current with your payments and any of the repo fees.

As long as you continue to make the payments, they would have no reason the instigate a repossession. When a vehicle is financed or leased, the creditor has an interest in the vehicle and rights under the contract you signed. If you are in default of the contract either by default in payment or otherwise (failure to insure or other terms) the vehicle can be repossessed.

When even one payment is missed the agreement is considered in default, and the lender has the legal right to take whatever action they deem necessary to secure their financial interest in the property. Unless all missed payments and applicable fees are brought current and the creditor agrees to allow the borrower to continue with the agreement, the vehicle can be repossessed.

It would depend on what the term "trying to pay" means. Once a debt goes into default it is due and payable in full.

So, if the debt in question has been defaulted, then yes, the creditor may sue you and take all remedies available to them under law.

I have a student loan unfortunately it is in default. I am disable and cannot work. Would I be able to still get a government loan to go back to school?

If you are in default, you are no longer eligible for a student loan or any other kind of student aid. If you want to return to school and receive aid, you must get our loan "rehabilitated." Call the creditor that is pursuing you. You can make an arrangement to make payments, the amount of which will vary, depending on how much you owe. After 9 (or 12) on-time payments, you loan will be current, penalties removed and negative credit reporting removed. It's a really great deal. Once your loan is rehabbed, you can then apply for aid, return to school and put your loan in deferment (no payments) while you remain in school at least half-time.

They will press you for a large payment, etc. but tell them you are on disability and can only afford the minimum. Be aware that now that

Your creditor most likely holds the car title and/or there is a lien on your title. So, you will be unable to transfer title without paying the lien. The easiest thing to do is to bring your payments up to date and then to sell the car if payments are too high for you to manage on a regular basis.
