Legal Answers
Q. I co-signed on a car loan with my fiance. I had to file bankruptcy. Will she lose the car?
A: Almost certainly no, unless she fails to make the required payments as agreed. So long as she is not in default under the terms of the loan agreement, the lender should refrain from any collection activity against her or the vehicle in question.
