I am 2 months into a Chapter 13 bankruptcy (waiting on my official plan confirmation). Within my plan, I 'crammed down' a vehicle title loan that I obtained from TitleMax of Virginia. I was just reading over the agreement I signed with TitleMax and noticed that my becoming "subject to a bankruptcy proceeding" is defined as an "event of default". The agreement goes on to list TitleMax's remedies in the "event of default". I have been under the impression that as long as adequate protection payments are being made to TitleMax (until such time as my trustee begins distributing payments to them from the plan), then they cannot repossess my vehicle? (I am a Pro Se filer by the way). I have attached a photo of the specific sections of the agreement in question.

I have a question on the automatic stay
I have a question on the automatic stay for involuntary bankruptcies. a voluntary chapter 7 or chapter 13 bk has a full automatic stay the first time and 30 days the 2nd time within 1 year of the first. How does an involuntary work? Suppose an involuntarybk chapter 7 is filed against someone and is dismissed. Three months later another involuntary 7 gets filed on the same person. Does it still have an automatic stay?

Then, the company has to declare bankruptcy to escape some business debt, what is the process?If the loans are in the company name but the individual didn't co-sign for them but did provide a social security number for the application - said to be just for identification purposes - and the load does not show up on the individual credit report; what is the liklihood that the bank will go after the owner(s).Are there typically debt settlements made prior to a business bankruptcy if the bank feels they might lose out on the money?
