Our attorney said that we may not have to liduidate the vehicle but may be able to get the Trustee to reduce the value he claims it is worth. We may have to take it to a mechanic to have it assessed to try to get the value reduced. Whatever the outcome we would probably just have to make payments to the court for whatever value it is determined to be worth.
I'm just upset because I feel there was negligence on our attorneys part and we shouldn't be in this situation with the vehicle at this point. Everything about the vehicle was disclosed from the very beginning. We have done our part. I just feel we may have been able to avoid this in some way had we been made aware of this situation happening.
What is a vehicle exemption and a wildcard??
Before I return to my attorney to discuss I would like to be as knowledgeable about all this as possible so I do not feel taken advantage of. We have not been extremely happy with this attorney but felt like we were already in the process and didn't know we could even possibly change in the midst of this case.
