How can I get my name off my ex-wife's car loan?
While deployed, my wife and I decided to get divorced. The day after we broke up she decided to buy herself a new car, without my knowledge or consent. She traded in 1 of our vehicles for a new one. The original loan had about $10,000 left with a decent interest rate. The new vehicle loan was $25,000 with a terrible interest rate. She used a general power of attorney I gave her before I left to co-sign for me (she would never have been able to afford it on her own). Our final divorce papers say that she is responsible for that debt. Is there any way to get my name off the loan?
What exactly did your divorce papers say? That she was to refinance the loan and you were to relieved of that obligation or if she could not refinance the loan you would sell the car? Being "responsible" for the debt does not get you off the loan. If she misses a payment there goes your credit.
Did you have an attorney? You may want to calll him or her about resettling the order of divorce Otherwise every time she defaults you are going to have to go back to court to enforce the order. Good luck.
