My sister co-signed a loan for her boyfriend's car while she was in a physically abusive relationship. He was arrested for domestic violence at least once while she was in this relationship, and she had more than one hospital visit from physical injuries.
Now, three years after the co-signing, the boyfriend has abandoned his financial responsibility on the car and she is left with a large loan balance and large monthly payments. She doesn't want or need the car and it has never even been registered in her name. Does she have any recourse to have the contract (loan) voided because it was made under duress (in this case the threat of physical harm)?
She now lives in California but the car was purchased in Nevada. Would this be a matter for the court in CA, or in NV?
