Hello,

So sorry to hear of your dilemna. I will strive to provide you with legal information to assist you.

I am a lawyer with 25 years experience. Although I am not your attorney, I hope that I can give you helpful legal information on this open and nonconfidential forum.

Unfortunately only debts incurred prior to filing the petition are dischargeable in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Therefore if you purchased the vehicle after filing the petition, you cannot discharge your personal liability on the debt.

Sorry
