cars parkedAs a bankruptcy lawyer in Memphis I meet folks all the time who’ve had their cars repossessed. Sometimes they come to see me because they want their cars back and hope it isn’t too late.

Sometimes, though, you might not want your car back after it’s been repossessed. Maybe you know you can’t afford it or don’t need it, and you don’t want to put up a fight for it.

You might assume after they take your car that your debts are settled. Sadly, that’s not always the case.

If the repo company sells your car for less than you owe on it, you can still be held responsible for the difference. If you owe $10,000 and they sell your car for $5,000, they may come after you for the other $5,000.

How can they come after you? Well, the creditors can garnish your wages and attack your credit score. They might call you all the time and demand payments.

Sometimes you might still owe money on more than one car. That means TWO groups are coming after you for debts you can’t pay.

This may not seem right. After all, you gave up the car. Why would they still be allowed to harass you about it?
