This is largely dependent on the chapter of bankruptcy that you're filing under. Is it for an individual? Is it for a business or a corporation. I will take the most common type of bankruptcy-Chapter 7-for an example.

But there are a number of exemptions and for many people, they do not lost personal items after filing for Chapter 7.

The article below lists many of the possible exemptions for different chapters.

The advantages of filing for bankruptcy are different depending on which chapter bankruptcy is filed.

Chapter 7 advantages are that the person in debt can make payments for less than a year and be debt free and most if not all of the unsecured debt owed can be dropped.

If a car is repossessed and sold at auction for less than the amount owed to the lender will filing bankruptcy discharge the remaining balance if it has been reduced to judgment?

It depends on the chapter. In either case, your remaining debt is now unsecured and a bankruptcy filing places the judgment on hold. If it is Chapter 13, file a claim and you may receive a percentage of the bankruptcy estate, but not usually until near the end of the bankruptcy term (3-5 years). If it's a Chapter 7, again, it's an unsecured debt and highly unlikely that the debtor will sign a reaffirmation to pay you back. If the bankruptcy gets dismissed (thrown out), your judgment is back in force, provided it has not expired.

Can you get your car back after reposession if you file bankruptcy?

While both home and automobiles are considered secure creditors, there are much less protections for automobiles.

If it was recovered before your filing, or ability to provide sufficient notice, then its impossible to get the car back.
