Hang in there. Dont give up. You are probably a one in 100000 case. You are doing it the right but hard way.Avoid the B/K if theres any way possible. You've made 3 yrs, dont waste all that hard work.It will get better. Someone (lender) will see that you are paying on the balance and RESPECT that enough to cut you some slack.

Your credit rating (or score) depends on All the information contained in your credit report. A repossession, which shows as a charge off or collection account, is considered a significant derogatory listing and would have a big impact on your credit score. Any derogatory item that has been updated, for any reason (including recent payment) would have impact your score the most. 35% of the your credit score is based on your payment history. In general, derogatory information remains on your credit report for 7 years from the date of last activity.

Vehicle in both names can spouse take it if other is not paying the payment while separated?

Yup. Pay your bill.Your spouse has the same right to the vehicle as you do. Your problem is that your paying nothing on the vehicle - so she has to pick up the bill. If she is paying the bill, then she deserves to have the vehicle. If you are paying the bill, then you deserve to have the vehicle. You cannot "one-up" your spouse by driving a vehicle that also has her name on it, and not paying for it. Your credit and her credit will suffer. My advice? Pay your bill. She has the right to the vehicle until you do.
