Denver, CO asked in Bankruptcy for Colorado

Q: How do you get title on chap 7 vehicle that payment was not made to bank but car was kept?

Ex kept 1 car and even after attempts made by bank to make arrangements, he ignored and kept car. It is in my name. He has recently asked for me to go to DMV to request duplicate title. I do not want to as I'm sure the lien is still being held by bank and he was to be responsible for the car per divorce. I am afraid that I would be financially liable. He said he is sure that the bank would have dropped lien due to time of initial loan (more than 7 yrs) and I don't think that is correct. Please advise

A: If you want the title to the car, you can try to work out a deal with the lender. You may get it for less than you owe.
