Apply for a lost title for the car. Then take the title with the vin number and your I’d to the dealership and have them make you a new key. Then go repossess or hire someone to repossess your car. Also make sure that you are not violating the dvo or any family court orders before you do so.

If you are intent on finding an attorney that doesn't get paid at all, my best guess is that you can go to... Read more »

Alternatively, you could stop work, file your claim and then return to work at your regular level; as long as it is for... Read more »
