she is on title on the loan. i am current and not 30 days late on payments.
she went with me to the dealership and took out the loan for me to drive the car. i obtained the insurance, and paid all registration renewel fees.
i did not sign anything, and my name is XXXXX XXXXX title.
but, the bank on her authority has me as the primary contact on the loan/
her ex husband is a attorney and is thratening legal action in breach of the "oral agreement" and wants the car returned within 5 days or they will take action? but, i use the car everyday. it is parked at my home and has been since i drove it off the lot. do i have any rights? my credit is bad, and i would refinance it in my name if i could, but i cant at this time.
she knew that the car was for me. the only reasoni was late on the payments was because i lost my job. i still paid her car loan before all my other expenses. i have the car, have been using it since i drove it off the lot. i have always had possession of this vehicle from day one.
i paid the registration, and pay the insurance. so how can i keep this car.
without it , i can not work without it.
