How To Stop Car Repossession

At Kennel Zeigler LLC, we understand how important it is for you to have transportation to get to work, to pick up your kids from school and to perform other necessary tasks. That is why we do everything possible to help you avoid the repossession of your car or truck.

At our Dayton office, you have direct access to a lawyer who is board-certified in consumer bankruptcy law in Ohio, giving us keen insight into the various strategies available for helping you keep your property. We are familiar with all the possibilities for regaining a vehicle that has already been towed away or avoiding repossession altogether.

If You’re Current On Your Payments, All You Have To Do Is Sign A Paper

You won’t automatically lose your vehicle if you’re current on the payments when you file Chapter 7 bankruptcy. All you typically need to do is sign a reaffirmation agreement. This agreement essentially says that you will continue to make your scheduled car payments. It’s as simple as that.

If You’re Behind On Your Payments, You Still Have Options

In some cases, you may be able to buy the vehicle outright for its actual worth instead of the amount of the loan. In other cases, we may be able to help you negotiate with the lender to lower the interest rate.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a particularly useful tool for many people. With Chapter 13, you can set up an interest-free repayment plan that allows you to catch up on your payments over several years. This way, you find immediate bankruptcy relief and still have access to the vehicle you and your family need.
