How We Can Help You Keep Your Car In Bankruptcy

One of the worst things about being in serious debt is not being able to pay your bills. If you don’t pay your car loan you will eventually be threatened with repossession. It then becomes a vicious cycle of needing to work to pay your bills, but not being able to work if you do not have a car.

Creditors are unsympathetic about your livelihood; all they care about is getting paid. “How can I save my car?” is one of the more common questions our bankruptcy attorneys are asked. Fortunately, it is possible to keep your car. The attorneys at Levitt & Slafkes, P.C., understand the stress and uncertainty you face. We will guide you through the bankruptcy process.

Taking Necessary Steps To Save Your Car

Filing for bankruptcy puts an automatic stay in place. This prevents creditors from pursuing payment for debts as soon as they receive notice of your filing. An automatic stay also stops lenders from repossessing your property, including your car.

Once you have filed for bankruptcy, if you want to keep your car and continue to pay the loan, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy can help you catch up on missed payments is It is important that you get the automatic stay in place as soon as you find out that your car is in danger of repossession. Acting quickly can save a lot of trouble. Our attorneys will guide you every step of the way.
