How soon can a car be repoed after filing chapter 7 bankruptcy?

Because of the "automatic stay", which goes into affect as soon as a Bankruptcy is filed, your car cannot be re-possessed while the Bankruptcy is in progress (unless the creditor files a motion with the court asking for relief from the automatic stay). However, as soon as the Bankruptcy is discharged or closed - which occurs approximately 6 months after it is filed - the car can be re-possessed.

If your car has been repossessed can you get it back when filing bankruptcy?

Quentyn, these questions are best asked of your B/K attorney. S/he will give you the legal advice you are PAYING for. Good Luck If your car is repoed and you've already filed for Bankruptcy (Chap 7) will you be able to ask for your car back if you still want to continue paying?

If the car is being repoed then you owe something.

If your car was repossessed and you went and got another one are you still allowed to file bankruptcy?

You car being repoed has nothing to do with bankruptcy. You can file anytime. If you are filing though, make sure you keep track of the value of the vehicle v. the exemption in your state for cars. You may end up having to pay the trustee more if you get an expensive car. IF you get a car that is 100% financed though, don't worry about it. (The bank would own it, not you)

Is it better to file bankruptcy or let a car get repoed?

Depends on your monetary situation.If you can make the payments then no but if you have alot of debt then yes declare.If they repo you lose the car and all the money you invested in it to that point.After the car is auctioned(at a very low price)you are then responsible for the balance plus all the fees.So if you go into bankruptcy before a repo you are much better off monetarily.

If you bought a motorcycle on yamaha's credit card for 89 a month and after two years it went up and they repoed it sold it for blue book can they garnish your wages for interest and fees in FL?

Short answer. Yes. They must first sue you and win a judgment in small claims court. Once they have done that, they can garnish your wages (some exceptions apply) they can seize bank account balances and more. Your best bet is to try to negotiate a repayment plan with them before they file suit.
