Q: My husband and ex wife had a vehicle together. And they failed to make the payments. Can my husband file bankruptcy?
John Robinson
John Robinson answered on Nov 1, 2019

Yes, he can file for bankruptcy. However, if he agreed in his divorce to assume responsibility (sometimes referred as "indemnify and hold harmless) for the debt it becomes more complex. If so, his attorney needs to think through the fact that a Chapter 13 discharge eliminates marital obligations... Read more »

Q: I own two vehicles. One is paid for i have loan on the other which my mom cosigned for. Can i keep then both chap 7 n KY

In all likelihood, yes. The only problem would be if the two vehicles have a lot of value (equity in the vehicle with the loan). You will just need to continue making the loan payments to keep the second vehicle.

Q: Anything I can do about a holder on my license for over 10 year's in Kentucky

John Robinson answered on Mar 30, 2019

If the holder is part of a civil proceeding (like an insurance company secured a judgment against you for damage caused while driving without insurance), a bankruptcy filing will likely restore your driving privileges. You are welcome to email me if you have more specific questions.

Q: I defaulted on a $13000 car loan. Is it better to file bankruptcy or hope the bank eventually gives up trying to collect

The loan was joint with my ex boyfriend and he has had the car for 3 years. Car value is abt $3000. I have no money and no house but I have a 2006 Jeep with an upside down loan on it. I’m a server.

John Robinson answered on Mar 4, 2019

$13,000.00 is too much debt to have over your head going forward. I'm not sure where you are located, but the statute of limitations in Kentucky for written contracts is 10 years (was formerly 15). This means that the creditor would have ten years under current KY law to initiate a collection... Read more »

John Robinson answered on Feb 7, 2019

This question defies a short linear answer. It's important to first know how much equity you have in the real property.

Q: Could I assign a car lease over to my daughter if I've already filed?
John Robinson
John Robinson answered on Dec 14, 2018

The bankruptcy code does not have any provisions that would allow you to modify terms of any assignment provisions within the underlying lease agreement. Therefore, you will need to review the lease agreement to determine what assignment rights, if any, you may have under its terms.
