A Reaffirmation Agreement is an agreement between a creditor and debtor(s) who has filed bankruptcy stating that the debtor(s) will honor the terms of the initial contract initiated with the creditor.
You are not required to sign a Reaffirmation Agreement. However, by executing a Reaffirmation Agreement with GM Financial, you will resume receiving monthly statements on your account, be able to access your account via our website, make payments via that website and be eligible for deferments on your account, once your case has been discharged.
Not all services are available to customers who have been discharged in a bankruptcy case but not reaffirmed their debt with GM Financial. If you wish to reaffirm your debt with GM Financial, a Reaffirmation Agreement must be signed – by you, your attorney and GM Financial – and filed in a timely manner with the Bankruptcy Court. If you are not represented by bankruptcy counsel, the Bankruptcy Court must approve the Reaffirmation Agreement before it is a valid, binding agreement. It is your responsibility to obtain such approval.
GM Financial urges you to discuss your obligations as a debtor in bankruptcy with your bankruptcy attorney. Account terms are not modified in a Reaffirmation Agreement with GM Financial.
