Recently we file for bankruptcy in that process we let two vehicles go back and we still have three one for our son and two other ones. But we're having problem now and we're going to go our separate ways but she would not let me get either one of the vehicles because she say both in her name but I am on one of the loans as a cosigner but the car dealership didn't put me on the paperwork do I have any rights to get in one of the cars
Lawyer: DamienJD, Attorney replied 7 months ago

You could be entitled to the property as part of a divorce decree if you are getting a divorce. Generally, though, someone can be named on a loan but not on the title and the co-signer on the loan does not have the right to the ownership of the vehicle. In other words, even though you co-signed the loan does not mean you own part of the vehicles. (this happens a lot by the way; you are not the only one). In any event, if you are going your separate ways and plan on getting a divorce, in a divorce settlement or a divorce decree when you split property, you could get one of the vehicles.

If you want to discuss further, just let me know. I know this is not quite what you would want to hear but it is better for you to know how it all works.

is it by law that I would get one of the vehicles through divorce. Or through separating everything
Lawyer: DamienJD, Attorney replied 7 months ago

Sorry. There was a site issue and I could not get back to you. It is not by the law regarding the particular vehicle but it is by law that in all the property that you have with your wife is subject to equitable distribution, meaning you each get your fair share of the property.

If you want to discuss further, just let me know.

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.
