MY vehicle is in both my and my wife's name. How do I trade it in without her signing off on the trade?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Bloomsburg, PA

My wife does not want me to buy a new vehicle. I want the new vehicle. My present trade in vehicle is in both our names. She will not sign off on it. How do I get around this?

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . You don't. You cannot sell property that belongs to another, even if it is partially owned by you, without that person's consent.

    Answered . This is something you don't "get around." Consider your wife's reasons and try to find out a way to address her concerns. You don't have a legal issue.
