2 Vehicles leased 1 signed by borrower and second with borrower and cosigner . Borrower has passed and unsure if cosigner will be ok just too return vehicle and the estate will take care of last 4 months of the lease or will cosigner be responsible regardless of the estate ? Deceased borrower is also attached to divorce decree as responsible party to make car payments of said vehicle ( child support agreement ) until lease end .
Your question is too complicated to answer without viewing the documents. You involve an estate, a divorce proceeding and a commercial lease. I suggest you take the matter with all documents to an attorney in your area. He can help you. Your question should not be under the Oil and Gas Practice Area. You have three distinct areas as I mentioned above. I would include this matter under Commercial Practice Area. Good luck.

I agree with the previous answer. The deceased parties estate may see a claim, and the co-signer is responsible for the loss to the lessor. The divorce decree is only between the parties and the creditor need not follow the agreement as they were not a party to the divorce.
