Edwardsville Car Repossession Attorney

If you are behind on your car payments, have been threatened with repossession or have had your car repossessed, you have options to stop car repossession. One option is filing for protection under Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

At Steele Law Offices, LLC, in Glen Carbon, Illinois, our experienced bankruptcy lawyer and staff can help protect you from unfair debt collection practices. Attorney Randall P. Steele provides bankruptcy services, negotiates loan modifications and helps you stop foreclosure.

When you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, all lenders and creditors are placed on an automatic stay. No one can legally seize your vehicle or pursue a deficiency judgment unless he or she receives permission from the court. If your car has already been repossessed by creditors, you must act quickly. You have a very small window of time to work within. Creditors are required to provide notice deficiency and sale before they can sell your property. Bankruptcy must be filed within this short 10-day notice window in order to stop the repossession.

If you are receiving calls or threatening letters from a collection agency for a discharged debt, call us immediately. Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, you have the right to fight back and make the debt collectors pay you money for their abusive, harassing behavior.
