Filing bankruptcy has its own costs, and by the time that you get possession of the vehicle, you may be approximately even, and maintain your credit rating the way it is.
I would at least visit with a local civil litigation attorney and go over the documentation you have - like I noted earlier, if you can get possession early on in a "pre-judgment writ" you can likely end this entire matter quickly and easily by simply reselling the vehicle to another buyer or dealership and paying off the loan. You wouldn't need to go all the way to a judgment, even though you would have a right to enforce the loan (getting a money judgment for whatever difference there is between what you sell the car for and what the balance on the loan is, but if you need to save court fees etc. there is a way to save them).

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
