The loan when I first applied. They continued to allow me to refinance the loan and take more cash after I no longer had the vehicle.

Based upon the information provided it is my opinion that your no longer having the vehicle at the time additional extensions of credit were made will not help you defend this action. If you got the money, you will need to repay it. The creditor's lawyer might use the fact that you no longer...View More

If the creditor refuses to repossess the motorcycle or release the lien, and assuming the debt was discharged in the Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you may need to reopen the bankruptcy case to file a motion to compel the creditor to act. It’s also possible to negotiate with the creditor, explaining that...View More

In Arizona, creditors are not obligated to repossess collateral such as a motorcycle.

The attorney has now reached out to move forward with discovery and other protocol but I have had issues acquiring counsel and need more time. Can I at least file a motion for more time so my case is... View More
Can you? Sure. It's a motion to extend time to respond to discovery. Be forewarned: now that you've filed and the defendant has responded, it may be more difficult to find a lawyer to take your case, or may require a hefty retainer upfront. Good luck.
I recently filed a complaint in Superior Court against 4 defendants due to a fraudulent transfer of a property.
