no i am the only one on the lease
Hello,


Thank you for your question.

In Florida property that is considered held by tenancy by the entireties is exempt from the creditors of one spouse. Property that is held in both spouses names is presumed to be tenancy by the entireties property. Therefore it appears that the checking account and mobile home would be exempt from the claim of your sole creditor. Since the vehicle is in your name only, if there is substantial equity above the amount of the loan, it would be subject to attachment by your creditor

since you owe more than the car is worth, the car could not be attached
