Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&A

Practice was taken over by Tom Godfrey.

Mr. Bernacchi went to Florida to escape Indiana winter, and will not be returning the practice of law. He informed us that he intends to sue Indiana for violating his constitutional rights. Doug was a fine lawyer and his client knew that, too. He did exceptional work for 27 years without reward or recognition he deserved.

Q. Can I stop paying on 2 court judgments (repos) three months before I file chapter 7?
A: This is not a fair question. Can you? May you? Should you? Or are you asking if you will or could be garnished in the next 3 months? I must assume you are not eligible to file now? Can anyone predict the future? Sorry, not something anyone can really answer. So, just file sooner rather than later if you want to stop paying and are eligible to file.
Q. i take care of my disable mother we have a personal loan together with our car as collateral we also have other
A: There are ways for sure. Most debtor's who file bankruptcy don't loose their car. Without a more information no one can give you reliable legal advice here. I would say call and we figure out, if you pay and drive through keeping the car, reaffirm the auto loan, or redeem it for fair market value. Remember Chapter 13 is a great tool to keep certain cars or even get them back if taken by a lender. I assure you the car and transportation issues are not

bankruptcy questions but the things everyone deals with. My question is the car a good car, well maintained, what year, who many miles, when purchased, how far you drive it daily? There a so many factors that I consider before counseling a client. But you are the boss and if your goal is to keep the car then we will find a way to keep it.
