We are now seperated and have not filed for divorce yet. I can't afford the car payments and he doesn't want to help me. What should I do?
There are various options available to you in either obtaining financial help for you and or determining the disposition of your vehicle. I would suggest that you speak with an attorney who can obtain more information from you, and therefore, guide you in the right direction knowing more about your circumstances.
I am a Fresno attorney and I offer a free consultation. If you choose, please contact me and I will more than happy to talk about your options in more detail.
If you have no separation or dissolution filed, then you’re stuck with negotiating with your ex. Otherwise, you can ask the court for orders regarding support and debt payments. A consult with a local attorney is in order.
Best of luck to you.

Are you legally separated? If you are still married then the court will not address the issue at all. Courts do not get involved in marital disputes.If you file for divorce it will be addressed in your divorce. Whose name is the car loan under. If it is your husband's name then he has the problem. At some point if no one makes the payments the car will be taken back. Your husband didn't really buy you are car if there are five years of car payments left on it.
