Interesting question. Ultimately the specifics of your situation would have to be reviewed by a local bankruptcy attorney. You can click here to find a local bankruptcy for a free consultation.

Generally speaking the title loan may be a lien against the collateral, in this case the car. So if you want to keep the car then you’d have to satisfy the lien. At least that’s what I always thought.

Recently I we published an article about a service that claims to be able to strip down the value of the lien in a bankruptcy and allow you to keep the car for less. Read File Bankruptcy — But Keep Your Car for Much Less Than You Owe.

I’d find that local bankruptcy attorney and tell them about this service to help you redeem the car for less than you owe on it.
