I cosigner a car loan a few years ago with my girlfriend at the time. We broke up, and she refused a pay it, and has been on the run to stop ot from getting repossessed. I can't afford to pay it. What are my options? I live in maine.

I am sorry, but I would need more information in order to analyze this situation properly. For starters, who is the owner you reference above? Is this person the owner of the trailer? If not, who is the owner of the trailer? Also, who is the holder of the mortgage? Finally, why do you say you...Read more »
Did you have an agreement as to how the proceeds from the sale of the jewelry lots would be split? If so, that would control. If not, I think you would at least have a good argument that, since you provided half of the funds needed to acquire the jewelry lots, you should receive half of the...Read more »
