If you didnt reinstate the loan, you SHOULD return it promptly or call them to come get it.It will be cheaper on you to return it. The lender will sit on it until they get ready to come get it so they can add late fees ,ect. to your bill.

Can you keep your car when you file a chapter 7 bankruptcy?

In the event of chapter 7 bankruptcy, you may retain possession of secured property only in the event you reaffirm with the lender. In the event no reaffirmation is signed for each piece of property, the property that has not been reaffirmed must be returned to the lender. If non-reaffirmed property is not returned to the lien holder (lender), that party may seek or continue with repossession of that property and any unpaid balance that is not forgiven by the chapter 7 once the bankruptcy is dismissed or discharged and the stay is lifted.

How can creditors size a tax refund check one year after filing chapter 7 bankruptcy?

The answer depends on who the creditor is and the status of the debt. If the debt was a student loan or other non-dischargable debt, then your tax refund can be taken. If the debt WAS discharged, ANY collection action of any kind on a discharged debt is a violation of the permanent injunction of the discharge and therefore illegal. If the creditor was not included on the creditor matrix, then informing them of the bankruptcy and discharge of the debt may be all that is necessary to have the refund returned to you. In other cases it may be necessary to file a Motion for Contempt against the creditor in bankruptcy court. This would require the re-opening of the bankruptcy.

Once Ch 7 is discharged and the auto is returned to lender is there an obligation to pay the difference between the sale price and the loan amount?

I presume that you purchased the vehicle and sometime after that you filed the Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. If that is the case and you included the Finance company on your list of included creditors, then the discharge does just that. It discharges the debt forever and you do not have to pay any difference. Yes, as this is usually one of the terms of the contract.

Absolutely. Any creditor action including repossession cannot be taken after the filing of a BK and/or before the BK is completed and discharged. The vehicle will have to be returned to the borrower to await action by the lender such as requesting the BK stay be lifted or a reaffirmation agreement made between the lender and borrower.

If creditors believe the person is trying to remove funds from accounts to keep them from bankruptcy proceedings; creditors can petition the court to freeze all accounts/assets.

Even then the bankruptcy trustee can request the funds be returned and included as assets in the bankruptcy.

Why do you have to repay for a car that was voluntarily given back and sold at auction and you will receive nothing in return?

Because when you took out the loan you agreed to repay the entire amount, the interest and any amount the lender had to spend on collection on the loan (late charges, reposession fees, auction fees, etc). Just because you gave the car back doesn't mean you don't owe the money. Find out what car dealers don't want you to know at If the lender took the car, and sold it at auction, file bankruptcy. The remaining loan amount will be discharged through the court. I know someone this happened to. They returned the car, filed bankruptcy and the loan was discharged. No money owed. When their situation changed, they bought a new SUV a year later. They are paying a higher interest rate though,

When a bankruptcy case is dismissed for missed payments what happens to the money already paid into the plans?

If the court has already confirmed the chapter 13 plan then the money already paid is distributed to the creditors. Basically, since the case was not discharged, you still owe the debt, so you made payments towards the debt while in bankruptcy. If the plan was not yet confirmed by the court, the money is returned to the debtor by the trustee save for a small amount for the trustee's expenses (trustee would ask for this in his motion to dismiss). Money would not be distributed to creditors by the trustee until after the proposed chapter 13 plan is confirmed.

Is a loan the same thing as rent?

Of course not. A loan is not a payment, but rather an entrusting of another person with your property (or money), expecting it to be returned. Rent is simply a payment in exchange for possession of something for some defined period, and it will not be returned. Similarly, a security deposit for renting property is not a loan and is not rent: it remains the property of the tenant, but is held by the landlord until the tenancy is discharged.
