Legal Answers
Q. We have $50,000 in debt that we may file Chp7 on, but we don’t want to file on a tractor we bought last year.
A: Great question, and one that I frequently field from potential filers. The John Deere Finance loan will have to be identified in the bankruptcy schedules. This ABSOLUTELY does NOT mean that you have to give up the tractor. There are multiple paths available to keep the tractor. One path, reaffirmation, would involve you signing a new contract (a "reaffirmation" agreement) as part of the bankruptcy case. When you reaffirm a debt you sign a new contract with the creditor. Typically the terms of a reaffirmation are the exact same as the original/current contract. When you "reaffirm" you re-obligate yourself on the account as if you did not file as to that particular debt.

The second path forward is commonly referred to as a "ride-through." When you ride-through, you simply continue to make the payments. The creditor applies the payments in accordance with the terms of the contract, and releases any lien/security interest when all payments are made. When you ride-through, you do not re-obligate yourself. This means that if something happens after the BK and you do not want the property or are unable to make the payments, you simply surrender the tractor to John Deere Finance. John Deere would not be able to pursue you for any more money if the collateral doesn't sell for enough to pay the account in full after you surrender it.

Thanks for the question and best of luck along your financial path.

Q. My husband and ex wife had a vehicle together. And they failed to make the payments. Can my husband file bankruptcy?
A: Yes, he can file for bankruptcy. However, if he agreed in his divorce to assume responsibility (sometimes referred as "indemnify and hold harmless) for the debt it becomes more complex. If so, his attorney needs to think through the fact that a Chapter 13 discharge eliminates marital obligations that may not be eliminated by a Chapter 7 discharge.
Q. I own two vehicles. One is paid for i have loan on the other which my mom cosigned for. Can i keep then both chap 7 n KY
A: In all likelihood, yes. The only problem would be if the two vehicles have a lot of value (equity in the vehicle with the loan). You will just need to continue making the loan payments to keep the second vehicle.
