Until the case is over, you shouldn't do anything with the car without permission from the court. If you owe money on the vehicle, you have a duty to maintain insurance and make the car payments. If the trustee abandons the car back to you, you can do whatever you want with the vehicle subject to any rights the lender might have.

This depends on what type of bankruptcy you are filing for. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is basically liquidation - all of the debtor's assets (besides those which are exempt) are sold to pay off his or her debts so you need to include everything. That being said, not everything will necessarily be discharged (i.e. child support and educational debt etc will remain with you after bankruptcy is completed).

Can a collector who bought your account from the creditor be awarded a lawsuit judgment if the debt was included in your bankruptcy?

There is something amiss here, a debt that is discharged in bankruptcy is no longer collectible. Therefore a lawsuit could not be filed and won nor a judgment awarded to the plaintiff pertaining to such a debt. The involved party should contact the attorney that handled the bankruptcy and have the judgment voided if it is indeed invalid. It would be advisable to acertain if the debt was discharged rather than excluded from the bankruptcy or perhaps sold previous to the filing of the petition.

What can you do if you just recently had a chapter 7 bankruptcy then soon after had your car repossessed?

Usually a car you are still driving cannot be included in a chapter 7 unless it is turned back into the finance company because it is considered an asset that, if sold, could help pay off your other debts. If you do not include it in the bankruptcy, you are under the same obligation to make payments and if you don't then the car gets repo'd. If you file for bankruptcy the first thing I would do is talk to your lawyer about the options open to you if you want to keep your car.

Can you sell your house while in bankruptcy?

You cannot sell your property during a bankruptcy proceeding. If a bona-fide offer is made to purchase the property a motion is filed for permission to sell.

The proceeds from the sale will then be controlled by the trustee in bankruptcy.
