You’ve completed the process of filing for a Chapter 13 repayment plan, and you are ready to start fresh for the New Year. You made the resolution to reorganize your debt and be more responsible with your finances from here on out. But what can you do when the time comes for a purchase of another vehicle?

Responsible credit card use can lead to a healthy credit score. On the other hand, credit card mishandling can lead to a financial disaster. Make sure that you act quickly if you discover that you’ve accumulated a significant amount of credit card debt.
The approval process during a Chapter 13 will take longer than that of a typical car loan. Because of the extended timeframe, there can be issues with your vehicle selection since it is risky for dealers to hold on to inventory, as there is a chance that you will not be approved for the purchase by the court trustee.
When you are discharged from a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you are essentially starting with a clean slate, aside from the fact that you will have a black mark on your credit report from the filing for up to 10 years, potentially making it hard to find a lender who will approve you. However, if you did have previous auto loans that were in good standing or have paid off a vehicle since you filed your Chapter 7, you will have better chances getting approved by a lender. You just need to make sure you are working with a car dealership that has a financing team that knows how to work with unique financial situations.
