My ex helped me buy a car well he just paid the down payment on the car and I bought the insurance and I am making the monthly payments and paying the insurance of the car well since we broke up he wants the car back or wants me to take it back to the dealer we bought it from. everything is under my name and now he is claiming that it’s his car and he’s just letting me use it he went to the dealer and said that since the dealer did see him take the money out of his pocket that they do consider it to be his car even though his name is not on any of the papers and he is saying that he is going to take me to court if I don’t return the car. I told him I wasn’t going to return it but if we go to court am i at lost? Should I just return it if they are going to take it away from me anyway? Or is he in the wrong and they can’t take it from me
You have not stated any reason for the dealer to be involved in your dispute. I suggest you review the specifics with your own lawyer, but it sounds like he is only making idle threats in an attempt to intimidate you. You have not stated any reason that he would have any rights in the vehicle.
