Can Bankruptcy Save My Home And My Vehicle?
In a word, yes. By filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, we can save your house and car. Because these are secured debts, meaning if you don’t make the loan payments the lender has the right to take the property back, you cannot just discharge these debts as you could with unsecured debt, like credit cards or medical bills. However, we can help you structure a plan that will allow you to pay these debts back over time.

So How Do I Keep My House And Car After Bankruptcy
Actually, you keep your house and car during bankruptcy. Once you complete your bankruptcy, you will have caught up on your back payments and be square with your lenders.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is commonly known as wage earners bankruptcy. When you file, an automatic stay will stop foreclosure on your house and repossession of your car. It allows you to create a payment plan so you can pay back your overdue payments in either three or five years and you get to stay in your house and keep your car. During that time, you have to keep up with current payments as well.
Once you have finished your payment plan, any additional unsecured debts, like credit card debt or medical bills, will be discharged. You will be all caught up on your arrearages and able to start fresh.
