Terry L. :

Hi, thanks for your question. You should hire a lawyer for specific legal advice. No attorney client relationship is created here.

Terry L. :

You have several options.

Terry L. :

you can contact the lender to see if they can work out an arrangement that can work for you.

Terry L. :

You can also sell the car, pay off the note

Terry L. :

You can also see if they will take back the car, sell it and then you can pay the remainder

Terry L. :

Bankruptcy will discharge the debt for the person named on the loan.

Terry L. :

If it is cosigned, then both parties are on the hook for the payments

Terry L. :

Talk to a bankruptcy lawyer if you are thinking that may be an option

Terry L. :

Most offer free consults.

Customer:

I can't go bankruptcy own property which is in both mine and my wife name

Customer:

What can they do if I take it back????

Terry L. :

They will auction it off for what they can, and then the signers on the loan are responsible for the remaining balance owed.

Terry L. :

They don't get very much at these auto repossession auctions though in most cases, so that should be the last resort

Terry L. :

Did you have any other questions?

If you do, let me know
