Can I get my Repossessed Car back after filing for bankruptcy?
Yes. If your car has been repossessed and you then file for bankruptcy, the creditor who took your car has to give it back. The creditor needs to be notified that you have filed for bankruptcy protection (something that your lawyer can take care of). Once they have been notified of the bankruptcy, if they refuse to give you your car back, they are in violation of the automatic stay and are breaking the law. This works because the law provides that if a creditor continues to exercise control over property of the bankruptcy estate (ie: the repossessed car), it is a violation of the stay for which they can be penalized.
