Hello: This isCustomer Welcome to JustAnswer! I am reviewing your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.
I am sorry to read about your difficulties.
Both of our names are ***** ***** car I was told I could not file anything against her as she is still considered an owner
Response: This is information is not correct. If she is not cooperating, you have to file lawsuit against her and have the Court force her to cooperate. That is the only way to force her to do the right thing here.
The lawsuit would be filed at your local Courthouse. You can obtain complaint forms at the Courthouse in the Clerk's office.
The lawsuit would center on what you want the Court to force her to do. For instance, if you want her to cooperate in signing papers to transfer ownership to you so that you can pay for the insurance or refi, then there is the lawsuit you would file. You would title your complaint that way. For instance, "Plaintiff's Request for an Order to force the Defendant to cooperate in transfer of ownership of property..."
You can request for waiver of the filing fees if you cannot afford the fees. The Court has forms for request for fee waivers. You can also request that the Court order her to pay for your Court costs.
Unfortunately, I cannot tell you what the Court would do or not do. You would need to present your issues to the Court and the Court would make a decision based on the information presented and testimonies of the parties.
