If you have a car loan and you file Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you must tell the court what you intend to do with the loan. You have three choices – redeem, reaffirm, or surrender. Reaffirming the debt on your car means that, despite your bankruptcy, you will keep the car continue to make payments, remaining fully responsible for the debt. In order to reaffirm your car loan, you must sign a reaffirmation agreement. This is a contract that lists the full balance that you are agreeing to reaffirm, as well as the interest rate and the monthly payment. The agreement will require you to attest to the court that reaffirming the debt will not present an undue hardship to you.
When a lawsuit to recover a debt is pending before a court, filing bankruptcy basically puts that case on hold until the bankruptcy is resolved. When you file for bankruptcy, notice of the bankruptcy petition will be sent to all your creditors, as well as the court in which you have any current suits pending. If the debt is successfully discharged in bankruptcy, the debt no longer exists, and a creditor would no longer be able to recover on it in court. However, if the debt is non-dischargeable, then the creditor may continue to pursue the claim after bankruptcy.
