Stopping Repossession of Assets in a Bankruptcy

Aggressive debt collectors are sometimes quick to repossess assets such as cars, tools, equipment or other assets if you are behind on your payments. If your property has been repossessed or is facing repossession, bankruptcy may provide a solution.

Guiding You to Calmer Waters

When you file bankruptcy, you are protected from adverse creditor actions by an injunction called the automatic stay. As long as you are protected by the stay, creditors cannot repossess assets such as cars, motorcycles, boats, homes, furniture, tools, equipment, guns and other property. They are also barred from harassing you.

If a creditor has already taken an item such as a car that you owe money on, we can often get the item back as long as it has not been sold.

What Can I Keep During Bankruptcy?

When you file bankruptcy, many of your assets are protected by bankruptcy exemptions. If you owe money on a car or other secured asset, the lender can eventually take the property if you are unable to keep up payments. However, by discharging many types of debt, such as credit card bills, you may find it easier to make payments on the assets you want to keep.

Can I Keep My Home?

Bankruptcy offers protection to homeowners who are in fear of losing their homes. Filing bankruptcy will stop a foreclosure and give you time to get caught up on your payments.
