A California attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. No one here has any way of knowing. The applicable agencies need to be checked with - there were different programs throughout the nation and each had their own timetables. Good luck

Why are you asking this in Justia > Ask a Lawyer > Florida? It seems to be clearly a matter of Louisiana law.

Unless the summary judgment motion is from your mortgage bank or landlord, it’s hard to see how you could be evicted from your home on that basis. However I would have to review your file in detail before I could advise you on your legal position.

You can petition a court to partition the vehicle. The vehicle will be sold, the loan paid off, and proceeds divided between you after adjusting the equities.
