Discharged vs. Open Bk in Northern Illinois
Yes, getting open bk loans are not as easy as getting approved for a discharged car loan, but depending on what type of bankruptcy you filed they are possible. If you have filed for a chapter 7 then most lenders will require you be discharged because the whole chapter 7 process is only two to three months long. Once you are out of bankruptcy you will have a lower interest rate and a better chance at being approved.
If you have filed for chapter 13 then you must have an "Authorization to Incur Additional Debt" from your judge or trustee. In most cases this can take up to three weeks to obtain, so we suggest getting it before even applying. Once you have that paper in your hands you can then find a lender that will work with the terms your judge has laid out.
