Can a creditor take my vehicle?
My husband's ex-wife's attorneys are taking him to court because he owes them money. He is currently not working; they mentioned going after our vehicle.

Unfortunately for all of us creditors can collect in many ways and taking assets is one of them. Yes, they can levy against your car. But they can only go after his assets. If the car is jointly owned they may try to ask that it be sold but they would not be able to take all of the money. I would seek out help with all of this. It is not unheard of that people attempt to scare others with unscrupulous tactics and threats. If the debt is your husband's alone then he alone is responsible. You may just get caught in the middle. He should seek help either reducing the debt or getting rid of it completely because of the change in his financial circumstances. But someone need to look at the whole picture, Good luck.
