You will have to take it up with the bank who repossessed the van. Since the car belongs to you, they should not be able to take it away from you. The laws may vary state-by-state. Talk to your divorce attorney to be sure you are protected. * Legally the vehicle could be seized if a deficiency remains after the repossessed van has been sold. This is possible because the transaction was made during the marriage and terms included in a divorce have no bearing on valid lending agreements.

What can you do if you and your husband co-signed for a car and you're now divorced and he was responsible for debt but didn't pay and the car was repossessed and sold and now he's threatening to sue?

If the responsibility for the debt belonging to your husband was a part of your documented divorce paperwork, you can basically tell your ex-husband he doesn't have a leg to stand on. If you don't have anything in writing that says your ex-husband, and NOT you, was responsible for the debt, you may be partly responsible financially.
