Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.

.

Did the money you sent bring the loan up to current so daughter wasn't behind on the payments at all?

thanks

There would have been a matter of another 100 to be current, she took the truck while my daughter was at Work, put all her belongings in a garbage bag
Lawyer: Barrister, Attorney replied 8 months ago

Ok, I hate to say it, but if she was behind, even a little bit, the seller has the right to repo the truck because daughter has breached the contract. Any money you sent in to help would be considered a gift from you to daughter and the seller wouldn't have to return it.

.

But the seller would either have to sell the truck at public auction and apply the money towards paying it off, or return the truck to daughter and sue her in court for a judgment for whatever she still owes..

.

I am very sorry that I don’t have better news, but please understand that I do have an ethical and professional obligation to provide customers with legally correct answers based on my knowledge and experience, even when I know the answer doesn’t make the customer happy...

thanks

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.

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.
