Q: I am a cosigner on a car loan for my ex husband in the process of divorce and he is purposely not paying the loan
To ruin my credit he won't pay for it I have text to prove it as well
A: Probably your most effective path to redress this problem is through your divorce lawyer and the domestic relations court. From the outset of a divorce case, or shortly thereafter, the court deals with the issue of temporary support, or support pendente lite, and that involves, in part, the management of monthly expenses of the parties relative to the respective incomes/earning potential of the parties. Speak with your divorce lawyer about how to deal with these issues.
A: Make sure your divorce lawyers gets that debt assigned to your husband.
A: Yes. Both attorney answers are correct. Speak with your divorce lawyer if you have one. Temporary support orders is the most effective way to address this matter. Have your texts ready to be easily reviewed by your counsel. If no counsel, make sure to bring those texts with you to court for the temporary orders hearing. You have to initiate the temporary orders hearing by motion. I hope this helps.
