I agree with Laura's answer. Get your vehicle appraised at Erkelens & Olsen in SLC. It may show a lower value. Some people file Chapter 13 bankruptcies if they worry that the vehicle equity exceeds the vehicle exemption. But the attorney should be able to explain how that works.
The answers below are correct. Utah has a statute of limitation on how long a written contract can be enforced. When you received medical attention, you most likely signed a document agreeing to pay the medical bills. Utah collection agencies are fairly aggressive attempting to collect on medical bills. You can pull your credit report to see if a creditor had obtained a judgment against you. You should meet with a lawyer and see if you need to look at bankruptcy options.
You should call a bankruptcy lawyer who can review the Order. You will likely need to re-file your case.

Have you talked with you bankruptcy attorney who prepared your Chapter 13 case? That's probably the best place to start. He probably won't charge you to review your case. You can also call my office and we can provide a free review of your Chapter 13 case. After that, though, we would likely still refer you back to the original bankruptcy attorney who filed your...

There are some very aggressive collection agencies and collection lawyers who take former tenants to court. If they win at court, they will likely try to collect on that judgment by garnishing your wages. Talk with an attorney and he can review the old...
