Please correct your rating, as I did not have a chance to respond.
Your bankruptcy should not stop the ach withdrawal, since you were only named on the asset, and not the debt.
Dad's loan, should not be affected because of your filing.
If you were cosigned on the loan, that would be different. Creditors cannot 'collect' during the bankruptcy.
therefore they could not withdraw the payment, if you were on the loan.
Since you are not on the loan, it shouldn't stop the payment.
Dad is required to make the payments each month.
So, just by being a joint owner of the car, and not on the loan, will have no impact on that loan.
Hope that clears things up.
Please re-rate my answer now that I have the full story. Your initial fact pattern was difficult to follow.
