Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello. I'll be happy to assist you.
If he's the co-owner on the lease, there is very little you can do if he threatens to take it back. From a legal perspective, he has as much right to possess the car as you do. The law only looks to who has legal right to the car, not who's actually making the payments. The only way to stop him is to get his name taken off the lease, which would typically require his consent. I'd suggest you call the dealership to see what your options are, but it will be difficult to take him off without his consent.
