Unfortunately, if your name is XXXXX XXXXX cards and his name is XXXXX XXXXX person, you will be liable for those debts if he doesn not pay. As far as the cars, that depends upon whose name is XXXXX XXXXX loans also. If both names are XXXXX XXXXX loans or just your name, then you are liable for those as well. The only recourse you have is to sue this person for the payment on the credit card bills and the cars. Because of the amount, you would have to bring suit in superior court. You should get an attorney to assist you with this and ask for attorney's fees as part of your suit to recover the debt.

i am very please with the answer now i know what kind of lawyer and where to file my case.unfortunately i am the primary holder of the credicard and the 2 cars.printed documents from my laptop is that legal to use when we go to court for the matters,or should call the credit company and @ this point the 2 cars will be kept until matters resolve or which ever comes plan is to return the 2 cars to mercedez-benz financial,can't afford to make the payment.

You can start with the documents you printed from your laptop, but you will eventually need certified copies from the credit card companies, especially for trial if it comes to that. As far as returning the cars, they will sell them, but you could still be held liable for the difference between what they sell them for and what is owed. You should get a deal in writing from the dealer if you return the cars that specifies exactly what you will owe or if they will write off the balance and not hold you liable.
