My wife and I went to a lawyer to file chapter 13. Altogether we pay about $1300 in car payments a month. In the plan we will pay $1100 a month. The interest rate will go down to 4.7 % for 5 years.

I only have about 2 or 3 years left on my auto loans. How could this be right that is the only secured debt i owe? It seams to be more money than my high interest loans. Do you have any help to offer me please I don’t know what to do!


Dear Helpless,

Honestly, I don’t know. Let’s see if we can’t get some bankruptcy attorneys to comment on this situation. A good place to start is to not be shy about asking your bankruptcy attorney for an explanation.
