A: More information is needed in order to provide you with a detailed answer. In general, if you are the primary on the loan, meaning it is your name on the loan documents and not his, repayment of the loan is ultimately your responsibility, and he is not entitled to the vehicle. However, if your boyfriend cosigned for you, meaning without his credit you would not have been able to get the car loan, he has entitlement to the vehicle.

It is best to contact an attorney who can assist you with the specifics of your case. We are glad to assist you. Contact us whenever you are ready. I wish you well.

A: If you are both signors on the loan, you have equal rights to the vehicle. You will need to pursue him civilly to enforce the terms of the loan or to regain possession of the vehicle.
