Can my car be repossessed right after I file Bankruptcy?

NO. When you file bankruptcy, an automatic stay is put into place that blocks creditors from trying to collect from you. A creditor cannot call or write you to ask for you to pay a bill and they cannot repossess your property. A Jacksonville bankruptcy lawyer can probably get your vehicle back for you. If the creditor knew about the bankruptcy, which is likely, then your bankruptcy attorney can actually sue the creditor for monetary damages due to FDCPA violations.
