Fighting Automobile Repossession Through Bankruptcy

The automatic stay that is part of both Chapter 7 bankruptcy and Chapter 13 bankruptcy halts all collection activities. If your car has yet to be repossessed the automatic stay will prevent the repossession. If your car has already been repossessed we can work to secure the return of your car.

Under Chapter and Chapter 13 bankruptcy you will have the option to surrender property (such as your car), reaffirm the debt or redeem the debt. Reaffirming means that you are acknowledging to the court that you do not want to discharge this particular debt through the bankruptcy process. Redemption is the offering of a lump-sum payment to the creditor for the release of the lien. In many instances, people filing for bankruptcy can redeem the debt on their car by securing a loan from another lender to pay off the loan from the current lender. An added advantage of this is that the amount necessary to pay off the car to the first lender is often less than what may have been owed.
