Can you file bankruptcy on everything but your vehicles?

You can file bankruptcy yourself or with an attorney. People choose an attorney because they do not want to mess with all the motions or learning any law and this can cost anywhere from 300 to 500 dollars to start a bankruptcy action. You can keep one vehicle and your house in a bankruptcy. Technically, when you file bankruptcy you file it for everything in a Chapter 7 and that will wipe away all debts (if you pass the test that they give to even claim bankruptcy) or Chapter 13 which is a consolidation of your debts to pay it off after partial liquidation of assets but be protected under federal bankruptcy law. It is best for your loan companies for your house and vehicles know about your bankruptcy as this will stay any repossession or foreclosure on your household or vehicles. That means they can not repossess or foreclose on your property until the bankruptcy procedure begins and you remain current on your payments throughout your bankruptcy. This can help you catch up and keep your house and one vehicle. You can technically claim bankruptcy and not tell your lenders for your house or vehicles but they will not "stay" or stop repossession or foreclosure on your property until you notify them (calling one of their call centers) and giving them your bankruptcy info including your case number. Hope this has been helpful.
