Can I Buy a Car Before or After Filing Bankruptcy?

In order to answer this question, we would have to discuss your current financial circumstances, such as what you’re currently driving, if that car has car payments, if it’s a lease, if it’s something you can carry all the way through the bankruptcy, etc. Whether you should get a new car before or after bankruptcy really depends on what type of bankruptcy you’re filing and your current financial situation. There’s nothing stopping you from buying a car before bankruptcy.
