Can my car get repossessed after the automatic stay expires 30 days after filing?

Asked about 1 year ago - Clovis, NM

I read where the automatic stay expires for the debtors property, but all property in the bankruptcy estate is still protected. My question can my car get repossessed after the 30 days.
I'm from New Mexico.
Thank you

    Answered . Your car IS part of the bankruptcy estate. All property is protected by the automatic stay until 1) the Discharge Notice is issued or 2) a creditor files to have the stay lifted & it is granted by the judge.
