I filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy due to some issues I was having in my personal life. Less than a year later my wife and I decided we did not want to lose our house so we filed a Chapter 13. At that time, no one told us we would never receive a discharge. Now, everything is complete and closed in my Chapter 13 but banks will not lend us money for a new vehicle because they do not see a discharge for my Chapter 13 on my credit report. They only see the discharge for my Chapter 7. What am I supposed to do? I can't drive these vehicles around forever. I've been driving them for 6 years and they were used when I bought them. I desperately need some help. I've spoke with my lawyer and the only answer she gives me is that the banks need to learn about the way bankruptcy works.I filed a Chapter 7 6 and a half years ago. I filed a Chapter 13 5 and a half years ago. I was told I will never (Emphasis on NEVER) receive a discharge for a Chapter 13. I have a court docket stating that my bankruptcy case is closed. I have a letter stating that my Chapter 13 is complete and all payments have been disbursed. But... all the dealerships keep telling me that the bank is asking them for a discharge on my credit report. Other than looking for the discharge on my credit report... the banks say I am completely appoved to receive a loan. I am just in desperate need of a new or "newer vehicle".
