Sandy, UT asked in Divorce for Utah

Q: I am seeking a divorce. My "husband" owes me $1000.00, my name is on his car title and I need to get off his title

He is upside down on the car and has ruined my credit due to his late payments. In spite of that, he recently bought himself a new truck. What can I do to get my name off of the car?

A: With there being a loan on the vehicle, the only way that you can remove your name is through a refinance. Within the divorce decree, you will want to make sure that he is required to refinance the car to remove you from it.

Having said that, if you are going through a contentious divorce, you should consider seeking an attorney to best represent your interests. There are a lot of nuances that can be overlooked. You want to make sure it is done right the first time to avoid more problems down the road.
