I filed Chapter 13 18 months ago. My car loan repayment was part of the plan. I've paid off all but $200.00 of the secured loan, with $8k remaining as an unsecured debt. My car is now undriveable and I do not have the luxury of waiting 30 day to have the court approve my purchase of a vehicle. I asked my attorney what would happen to the car loan if I had the Chapter 13 dismissed and he said that things would revert to the way they were before I filed for bankruptcy. Has anyone been in a similar situation? Does that mean that I owe the $8k as part of a secured loan again. My attorney is not very forthcoming with answers.
