My truck of 12 years blow it's engine, my wife served me with divorce papers a week ago. Can I buy a vehicle. I need a way back and forth to work.
I usually advise clients to wait on new major purchases, however, it sounds like you are in a "have to" situation. You can buy a vehicle. Just be aware that the ownership of the vehicle must be decided in the divorce. If you have already been served with divorce papers, I suggest you retain an attorney and he or she can advise you further with regard to a new vehicle and other issues in the divorce.
