Your ex-husband had a vehicle repossessed after you moved to Maine Can a Calif collection agency collect the debt from you?

If your name is on the loan for the repossessed car, you are probably liable for its payment. If, however, during your divorce proceedings, you pro-actively removed your name from this loan, you may be able to present that proof to the lender, so that you are not pursued for the amount owed. Be aware, however, that WikiAnswers' answers are provided by volunteers, and not by attorneys. You are best advised to seek legal counsel to clear your name.

Under Florida law a spouse cannot be held liable for debt repayment if the debt was not jointly incurred. The issue concerning the second card holder will need to be taken up with the creditor. If the couple were still legally married at the time, the creditor will probably accept the spouse's right to use the account. In which case the account holder will be held liable for all charges pertaining to the account in question.
