Keep Me Off The Loan

With a divorce looming, Jennifer is scared that her husband might do something that would put her at risk.

QUESTION: Jennifer is getting divorced and her husband wants to take out a car loan. How can she protect herself so she’s not liable? Dave says it’s pretty easy.

ANSWER: Unless you sign for the car, it won’t affect you at all. He couldn’t snicker it in there unless he signs his name fraudulently. The judge could hold you liable in divorce court, but that would be very unusual.
