We owe a lot on both cars. I also have tax debt, student loan debt, credit card debt, medical bills and collection companies. What can bankruptcy do for me in terms of clearing these debts and allowing me to get the one car back and keep both cars?
It all sounds possible. But, without knowing more about each particular debt, its impossible to tell. Best to contact an attorney to discuss these, and your greater financial situation, to get answers to these questions and to determine a best course of action.
There is no exemption in Ohio to protect short term disability payments (received from an insurance company, I presume) from being attached. The only way you can get it back would be to file a bankruptcy (presuming you are having financial difficulties (consult a bankruptcy attorney) and getting...Read more »
I am not a joint card holder. My name is no where on the account. They just helped me out when I was having money issues and I agreed to pay a monthly amount until the balance was paid off. Now, there is no balance and they keep taking my money even though they no longer owe the amount.
No. Your payment is your payment unless you file a motion to modify your plan payment. That is an entirely different question. The money you pay to the Ch. 13 Trustee just goes to pay off the other creditors of your case, based on how your Chapter 13 plan is structured.

Also we were sued in 2010 for another of his hosp bills and he has never made his payments. I paid 25 mthly for about 6 years. We owe more... Read more »
I'd have to take a look at what your Separation Agreement says, but there would be no impediment to discharging all of this debt as to the original creditors. The Separation Agreement could cause issues if there was an assumption of debt provision.
What are those expenses comprised of? credit card, a loan from the school, a grant, etc.. Without knowing that, I really can't tell you whether its a debt and whether its dischargeable in a bankruptcy.
The filing of a bankruptcy creates a protective "bubble" of all of your assets and your income from your creditors. Chapter 13, specifically, is a consolidation and pay-back plan. Included in the list, and one of most importance, is paying back mortgage arrears. In most parts of Ohio,...Read more »
In any bankruptcy filing, all of your creditors must be notified of the filing of the bankruptcy. How you want to treat them and whether they are discharged (or you continue to pay them) in your bankruptcy are questions/issues you should speak...Read more »
