If you are in a chapter 13 bankruptcy and are paying for an older vehicle, sometimes the vehicle (or one of them) that you are paying for just isn’t worth keeping anymore. It may have completely stopped running or require repairs to continue running that are more expensive than the vehicle is even worth.  You have options.  You may be able to drop it from your bankruptcy case, lower your bankruptcy payment, and walk away from the vehicle that is no longer worth keeping.

A Chapter 13 bankruptcy will work wonders on your debts and help to place you in control of the creditors.  Chapter 13’s help manage your debt obligations for a period of 3-5 yrs by a repayment plan.  You work with your bankruptcy attorney to submit a plan on restructuring your debt; making it easier for you to pay.  In addition, the Chapter 13 Plan addresses whether or not you pay anything towards unsecured debts.  Depending on your situation and desire, you could pay anywhere from 0% to 100%. Debts and bills overpowering you are now under control and reduced to an affordable amount.  This is an option available to you that offers a lot of benefits and puts you in the driver’s seat.
