Response
: Yes, you can go and get the car. You would not go to jail for doing so. As part owner of the car, you have equal right of possession for the car. Just make sure that when you go to repossess the car that you avoid any confrontation with your daughter or her boyfriend.

Response: No, you do not. You can take possession now if she is not making payments.
