Or we can chat here. What are the grounds to lift the stay?
A lender who wants to take a car during a bankruptcy case must ask the court to lift the automatic stay and allow the lender to repossess your car. The lender does this by filing a “motion for relief from the automatic stay” with the court.
They arent going to be able to collect money. The money is still part of the bankruptcy to be discharged if you complete bankruptcy. Repossess it, yes, that is what a lender seeks by lifting the stay
Again I cannot tell you what happened without a full review of the case. They are making a motion to lift the stay to repo the car. If you are behind on the payments from the petition date to current then they can.
The bankruptcy only discharges the debt before the petition debt. This is the same as a mortgage or condo association. You are only discharged o the debt before the peitition date, not after
Thats my best guess at least.
Yes the bankruptcy still covers the debt, just not the collateral.
They have to make a motion for relief due to the automatic stay. They are doing it legally properly
Not if you dont oppose it and want them to come get it, no
