When You Need To Keep Your Car

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.

I am attorney Randall Steele. For over 30 years I have helped protect people in Glen Carbon, Illinois from unfair debt collection practices. I provide bankruptcy services, negotiate loan modifications and help you stop foreclosure. Call me at Steele Law Offices, LLC and find out what I can do to protect your property and stop harassment.

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 they receive 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.

Lower Your Car Payment

Often, I am able to renegotiate your car payment and reduce your monthly payment through a third-party finance company. I file all of the necessary paperwork for you. I have appraisal experts who will testify on your behalf to help make this happen.

Similar steps can be taken to put an end to harassing phone calls, letters and emails. With more than two decades of experience, you can count on my commitment to help you through this difficult stage in your life.
