Anthony Marvin Avery's answer You must continue to make payments or the Lender will get relief from the Stay and repossess the collateral. Find out what type of payments your Sister's Plan proposes, and this will determine what you pay each month after the Plan is confirmed. But until the Plan is confirmed, no payments by the Trustee will be made.
Anthony Marvin Avery's answer The Creditor probably can Probate Grandmother's Estate for its benefit. But it is very unlikely. You are probably better off filing a Notice of Exempt Property with whatever Court and Docket Number you are being sued under. You should be able to Exempt all property, but be careful with any Bank Accounts.
Anthony Marvin Avery's answer It is very possibly a Preferential Transfer. But it is really for the Trustee to set aside and pursue the moneys paid out pre-petition. Employees will be considered Preferential Creditors usually, but a Severance Package is probably a Preference.

Any proceeds thereafter will be delivered to the trustee although she may receive them pursuant to one of her e emotions. She should consult her bankruptcy attorney about getting the remaining funds as well as securing s car.
John Martin Hilla's answer You haven't mentioned who exactly is planning to file for bankruptcy, among other things. If yourself, schedule an appointment with a bankruptcy attorney in your local area to discuss your options and the extent to which a creditor who has repossessed your vehicle and its agents may or may not retain your personal property before or after the filing of a bankruptcy petition.
Timothy Denison's answer You probably should have a lawyer review your situation but they can only take 25% of your wages. If your agreement is withholding as long as you pay as agreed, you should be fine.
Timothy Denison's answer Student loans are not dischargeable. The car and the cash express are dischargeable. First thing to do is find a competent bankruptcy attorney in your area who can help you organize your case.
