Cramming a Car Loan in Connecticut
Under Chapter 506(a) of the Bankruptcy Code, you can reduce the amount you owe on your car loan in Chapter 13 bankruptcy if:
- You have owned your vehicle for more than 910 days (about two and a half years)
- The amount left on your loan exceeds the current fair market value (FMV) of the car
This is known as a "cram down," and it can significantly reduce the amount you owe on your car loan, through the adjustment of the interests, a reduction in monthly payments or fewer payments over the life of the loan.
Cramming down a car loan is only possible through Chapter 13. If you are filing for Chapter 7, a 722 redemption may allow you to keep your car in bankruptcy. We will explore every avenue so you can keep the vehicles and other assets you need while getting your debt under control.
