If the vehicle is protected by the state or federal bankruptcy exemption, you can try to reaffirm the loan agreement with the lender. If that's not possible you will be required to surrender the vehicle and will be probably be held responsible for any deficiency and applicable fees after the car is resold.
YES, you can include it whether the payments are current or not.
The card holder is under no legal obligation for the card holder to continue making payments after filing for bankruptcy, unless the case is dismissed without a discharge. There are some who believe that they can improve their credit rating by pay off debts that were discharged in a bankruptcy, but I believe there are better methods to reestablish credit after bankruptcy.
If you reaffirmed your car loan during your bankruptcy, you agreed to continue making the payments. If you included your car in the bankruptcy, then the loan was wiped clean, as it appears to have been according to your credit report. Your car should have been repossessed, but apparently wasn't. You should check with the lawyer who handled your bankruptcy, but my guess is that your car slipped through the cracks.
Depending on your state... a car that is included in a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy cannot be repossed. The Bankruptcy laws protect you from repossession. Just as long as you are in Chapter 13 and are making payments to the Trustee, your car cannot be repossessed.
If you continue making the regular mortgage payments, including the escrow amounts, you are reaffirming the debt. It would be better to formally file a reaffirmation agreement that is approved by the court.
Spousal support and child support debts cannot be discharged in a bankruptcy, so the ex spouse must continue to keep making the payments. Failure to do so can lead to a dismissal of the bankruptcy case.
The short answer is no. As long as you are making the payments the car will not be repossessed. When the co-buyer goes before the bankruptcy judge they can have the car included or excluded from the bankruptcy. If it's included then the car will be "voluntary" repossessed. If it's excluded then everything is "business as usual" for you. The key is to keep your payment current and on time.
Not as long as you continue to make payments on it.
I DO NOT KNOW WHAT STATE YOU ARE FROM OR WHAT ATTORNEY YOU HAD. I KNOW MY CAR WAS LISTED AND I MADE PAYMENTS... BUT I KNOW THAT IF I MISSED PAYMENTS, THEY WOULD TAKE MY CAR... SO,NO...IT IS ILLEGAL FOR THEM TO ASK YOU FOR ANY PAYMENTS AT ALL. HOPE IT HELPS?!
You can get a Chapter 13 bankruptcy dismissal by asking your lawyer to ask the trustee for a dismissal. If you are having trouble making the payments, you can ask for you bankruptcy to be modified.
Go to where the bankruptcy is filed and have the file pulled and there will be an accounting of all the debts and payments being currently made. It is public information.
Yes, as long as you keep making the payments.
If you did not list it in your BK, you will be responsible for any outstanding balance that is not recouped in the auction. Yes. Secured property is not dischargeable in any bankruptcy filing. ------------------------------ If you included it in the bankruptcy, but just didn't reaffirm it, you won't be responsible for any balance.
When you co-sign on a loan or mortgage for someone, you are promising to make the loan payments if they can't. When someone files for bankruptcy, they are claiming that they cannot make their payments. It would stand to reason that if someone you co-signed on a mortgage for files for bankruptcy that you would then be liable for making the payments.
You figure out a way to continue making the payments.
No. Paying it off or even making a payment, does not reactivate the debt. Nor will it obligate the person to make future payments on that account or any others included in the BK.
You will have to ask your bank about that. They are in control now.
In most cases, yes. Contact your lawyer to be certain.
Not unless your bankruptcy did the right things to allow you to keep it. If you are not in arrears in your mortgage payments before filing, you have to continue making the payments - preferably before the due date. If you are in arrears, you must file a chapter 13, with a plan to pay the arrears and whatever part of the unsecured debt you have to pay. Once the plan is completed, you can keep your house. If you get behind in your post-petition payments due, the bank will apply for relief from the automatic stay and you will lose your house.
It is necessary to declare bankruptcy when a person cannot afford to continue paying for bills and other things they need. A person may declare bankruptcy if their business is not making any money.
Yes. The financial insitution will typically call you to set up a time to pick up the vehicle or have you drop it off if you do not intend to reaffirm the debt. They are not allowed to call you to ask for payment, but can ask for the vehicle. You can, however, continue to make voluntary payments on the vehicle and they will not repo it if you keep it current. If you do reaffirm the debt, that means that you intend to keep the vehicle and will continue to make payments on the vehicle, meaning that they are allowed to contact you about making payments.
No. But, the vehicle will become a repossession if payments are not made.
Depending on the type of bankruptcy you are in, you can drop out of it, often just by not making the required payments. Please note though that the bankruptcy will still appear on your credit reports for 10 years and you may have a hard time filing again, if you need to.
It depends on how your mortgage / bankruptcy interaction works. If you are making plan payments and arrears are included in the plan, it can require some re-figuring. You should contact an attorney. Speak with an attorney about your specific situation. If you can not find an attorney, contact your local Bar association and they will refer you to one.
