Hi - my name is ***** ***** I’ll be glad to assist.If you want to surrender the vehicle in your chapter 13, then you can elect not to reaffirm the contract and turn the vehicle over to the lender.Your lawyer should be able to help get that done as part of your chapter 13 plan proposal.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
