Bankruptcy Can Prevent Repossession or Get Your Car Back
If you are behind on your car loan, the bank or auto dealership can take action to repossess your car. Just one or two missed payments can result in the repossession company towing your vehicle away. If you cannot afford to pay the arrears, bankruptcy can prevent repossession. If it’s not too late, you can even retrieve a repossessed car in a chapter 13 bankruptcy.
Filing bankruptcy is a drastic step just to keep your automobile. Most likely you also are struggling to pay your mortgage or rent, your credit cards and other bills, loans and obligations. The Minnesota bankruptcy lawyers of Hoglund, Chwialkowski & Mrozik, PLLC, can help you file immediately to save your car from “the repo man” and address your debt problems.

Our Minnesota Attorneys Can Stop Repossession
Ideally, you should contact a lawyer before your car is repossessed. Filing for bankruptcy invokes an automatic stay against creditors. This means the lender or dealer who holds the note on your car loan cannot contact you, threaten you, take you to court or hire a third party to repossess your vehicle.
- In Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you must stay current on your car loan to keep the vehicle.
- Chapter 13 bankruptcy provides an option to get your car back if it has been repossessed. As long as the creditor has not yet sold the car at auction, we can file a plan seeking the return of your vehicle. If your vehicle has been repossessed, a Chapter 13 case must be filed with the court within 10 days to get your car returned to you.
