I live in Maryland and Have a joint account with my 25 yr old daughter.
3 years ago I had a car repo'd. At the time I was unable to make any payments, the car was auction and I was sent a letter that I still owed 3000.00 for it. I informed them I was unemployed. I never heard from them again. The 3rd week of November Our joint account was frozen with a garnishment. My daughter filed a motion to have her money freed because she was not part of the law suit, she had proof of her part of the money because of direct deposit slips. The car company Lawyer said she wasn't intitled to the money because it was a joint account and she wasn't my spouse? This makes no sense to me at all. How can she be held accountable for my debt? Is there any similar case I can site on a follow up motion?
