my husband has a car its in his name but the car payments is in his mothers names. but he makes the payments and he only owns 4 payments lefts. she is saying she is going to take it away can she do that?
No. Whomever's name is on the title is the legal owner of the car, not the guarantor of the loan.
Not if the car title's not in her name.
Avvo doesn't pay us for these responses, and I'm not your lawyer just because I answer this question or respond to any follow-up comments. If you want to hire me, please contact me. Otherwise, please don't expect a further response. We need an actual written agreement to form an attorney-client relationship. I'm only licensed in CA and you shouldn't rely on this answer, since each state has different laws, each situation is fact specific, and it's impossible to evaluate a legal problem without a comprehensive consultation and review of all the facts and documents at issue.
I agree with the answers you have been given. If the car is in your husbands name and he is making the payments - there is not much the mother can do. Sounds like she signed on as a guarantor. If her status is different it might change everyone's answer.
Our Rating is calculated using information the lawyer has included on their profile in addition to the information we collect from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals.
