after a person falls behind. At Kostopoulos Law Group - The Bankruptcy

One of the best ways to save yourself from repossession is to file for
bankruptcy. Regardless of the chapter that you file under, bankruptcy
places an automatic stay on your accounts. Automatic stays are court orders
that force all collection attempts and contacts with debtors to cease.
If your vehicle or property is in threat of being repossessed,
bankruptcy will put a hold on all repossession attempts. In addition, if your property
has already been repossessed, acting quickly to file bankruptcy could
help you regain your property. Vehicles may be able to be returned as
long as you pay impound or storage fees. Early intervention is key; otherwise,
your property may be sold at auction to repay loans and debts.
Consumers have rights during repossession!
As a consumer, you have rights that are protected under the Federal Trade
Commission, and any attempts to repossess and item that violate your rights
are illegal. According to federal and state laws, repossession companies
cannot take your property with use of force of threat, enter into your
private property without permission or enter into a locked garage or storage
facility without permission. In addition, if the repossession is for a
vehicle, they cannot force you to stop driving and take your vehicle nor
involve the police in an attempt to repossess. Any property that is damaged
during repossession may be the liability of the repossession company.
