It normally has to be approved by the bankruptcy judge as in your best interest, and some judges tend not to approve confirmation agreements. Today, we give an example if, in the case of a loan to a vehicle, the observatory can be a good reason to file a Chapter 13 file. Confirmation agreements do not benefit debtors. They only benefit secured creditors. Their purpose is to enable secured creditors to recover the unsecured portion of an otherwise guaranteed debt after the withdrawal. If you have a car loan with a balance of $20,000. B.B and the car in charge of the credit is worth only $12,000, the unsecured portion of the debt is $8,000. As explained below, a debtor must think very carefully before confirming a debt. Some confirmation agreements require court approval to be effective.

The confirmation agreement and coverage must be filed in court. If you stop making payments and the lender picks up your vehicle, they will have to pay the repo-man, pay for the car to be sent to an auction, pay the auction fees and the necessary legal fees during this process. 4. The lender will then file the confirmation agreement signed in court. You have ways to deal with a car loan if you file a chapter 7 bankruptcy case. A confirmation agreement can lead to new debt problems if you default your credit payments. Once your debt has been repaid with Chapter 7 relief, you cannot declare Chapter 7 bankruptcy for eight years. Confirmation of a car loan is risky because the limits of how often you can apply for insolvency protection are limited. It`s not a bad idea to talk about all this with a bankruptcy lawyer if you`re not sure what to do with your car. Resignation.

Apart from bankruptcy, if you fail with this loan, the car lender will first leave its right to pledge against the car and regain possession of the vehicle. Assuming the lender is able to sell the vehicle at auction for $12,000, you still owe the remaining $8,000. The lender will then exercise its contractual assistance against you and will use various means, including the lawsuit against you, to recover the balance of $US 8,000 of the debt.

(See the ninth district`s opinion, In re Dumont.). Prior to this decision and the amendments, debtors could keep their vehicles without signing a confirmation agreement.
