Q: I filed jointly for a CH 13 Bankruptcy in 2018. My spouse died in 2020 and I was still paying off his auto within the
plan. I asked to surrender the car and the creditor was informed. Creditor has not taken the car. Can I get the title from the creditor with lien release?
A: Great question, but it would be necessary to gather a lot more information in order to help you determine your rights. First - contact your attorney. They should know why you filed the bankruptcy and what you want to accomplish. If you did not use an attorney (good job getting this far because less than 2% can complete a chapter 13 without an attorney). If you did not, or do not have an attorney, then contact the folks at the Arizona Bankruptcy Court's Self-Help Center.
