Not really. if they gave the car back, well ok, if they kept the car you have investment in the car that you can use on your side. They are probably showing you who's the boss. Be nice to them and work with them.

Can a creditor sell a repossessed vehicle they have had in their possession if the debtor files bankruptcy?

How can you prove that a judgment has been discharged in a bankruptcy?

The answer depends on the context. If you properly listed the debt in your bankruptcy, then the bankruptcy cour will have a proof of service showing that the creditor was notified of both the bankruptcy and the discharge. You can get those documents from the court's file and show them to the creditor or the creditor's attorney. If the creditor insists on attempting to collect the debt, you should retain an attonrey to reopen the bankruptcy and file a lawsuit called an adversary proceeding for damages and sanctions against the creditor and/or the creditor's attorney. One point that many people do not realize is that while a judgment can be discharged in bankruptcy, judgment LIENS are NOT discharged unless you file the proper motion with the bankruptcy court.

What happens if a creditor garnishes after filing bankruptcy?

I assume you mean after YOU filed bankruptcy (the creditor's filing bankruptcy doesn't affect your garnishment, except maybe to change who's "garnisheeing"--NOT "garnishing"--your wages). If so, contact your attorney so he/she can bring the creditor into court for violating the automatic stay.


If the creditors repossessed a motorcycle and then DID NOT sell it at an auction do you still owe?

When a car is repossessed in Minnesota what are the laws?

You will have to pay the balance due after the sale.

Rodgers claims that despite her bankruptcy discharge and her failure to reaffirm the installment contract post-bankruptcy, she was entitled to notice before the vehicle was repossessed. We disagree and affirm.
