Customer Question
My ex girlfriend is on...
My ex girlfriend is on the lease. We broke up right after signing a 1 year lease last August. She stole my car last Wednesday, she also charged $500 to my credit card.
I want to try to avoid her getting a theft charge on her record, but only if I can get her to come to a reasonable agreement.
What I want is for her to sign off of the lease, return my car, and sign some sort of legally binding document that says she has no right or access to my car going forward, so that if she were to take it again, I can legally report it stolen.
How much would it cost to just get assistance with securing the proper legal paperwork for this?

Good afternoon Jared. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.

What you will want her to sign is a Settlement and Release Agreement. I can provide you a template of this document for you, I can do that for you through the Additional Services option offered by JustAnswer. If that would be helpful, let me know and I'll extend that offer and you can then decide whether or not to accept. Fair enough?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
