Hi JACustomer,
When you file a Bankruptcy, you are allowed to continue to pay any creditors - including your mortgage lender and your car loan company - that you want to continue to pay.
If you are current on the payments for these loans, and if you continue to pay them, filing a Bankrutpcy will have no affect on them.

I think this is what you wanted to know. If not, please let me know.
Thank you!
