Hazleton, PA asked in Consumer Law, Family Law and Foreclosure for Pennsylvania

Q: I have a trailer with 2 names on loan. X-wife wants it and If i let other take it, can i protect myself legally?

My X-Wife and I have a Travel Trailer together. We failed to make payments and the bank foreclosed on it and charged off the debt. They never Repossessed it. If my X-wife Takes it or I just let her take it off the property, is there a way I could get something signed saying I want nothing to do with it if she does? I just do not want any legal ramifications (besides the bad debt) coming against me if she were to do something bad while in it if possible. The Trailer was not part of the divorce.

A: Make sure it's titled in her name. She should give you a document that she accepts all responsibility. You say "x"--did you have a divorce (if she got posession that may cover it) or just separated?
