Re: Joint Title Between Couple, Who Gets Ownership of Car if Only One of Them Paid
that's a question for the court
Am I entitled to the car?
same as above
Will I be forced to split the worth of the car in a sale to divide the asset?
sort of but it could result in a felony stop one day when you are least expecting it.
Is it lawful to go and repo the car myself and hide it from her?
Will I have to hire an attorney to get it back?
You need to sue her and argue you have equitable title due to you having paid for the car in whole. You will have to explain why she shouldn't be entitled to a share of the value. If you can convince a judge of your argument, you should win.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
