Q: Why is it important to remove your spouse from your vehicle loan?
If you are awarded a vehicle and your spouse’s name is attached to the loan, you may need to refinance the loan to remove your spouse’s name from the loan. This is important as vehicle loans have a big impact on credit. If you do not remove your spouse’s name from a loan, they may not be able to qualify for additional loans. This applies to any vehicle that has a loan in both names: car, truck, SUV, van, RV, ATV, motorcycle or boat. Before you modify any financial accounts during your divorce, be sure you have permission from your spouse or permission from the Court.
With iLendingDIRECT, not only can we help you with your vehicle loan title, but we can also see if your vehicle is a candidate for auto refinancing or cash back.
*It is important to understand that a temporary injunction prohibits the transfer of anything after filing for divorce without authorization from the Court or consent of the other party.
