  1. If the only reason you don’t want to go bankruptcy is the co-signed car loan, then you need to be better informed.

    I assume that you want to keep the car. Chapter 7 bankruptcy would allow you to reaffirm the car loan debt. That means you are re-obligating yourself on the loan after the bankruptcy is complete.

    As long as you continue to make payments, then your parents credit will not be damaged because you are staying current on the loan.

    Also, by paying the debt after a bankruptcy, it will help you re-establish good credit after the bankruptcy.

    But if you are falling further behind in payday loans each, week, month, etc, that is a recipe for a financial disaster.

    You need to address it sooner rather than later.
