Q. see more information!
A: Please consider that you have very little equity in the vehicle. Most likely you are "upside down" with the car being worth less than what is owed. So, what would you sue for? Negative equity? Your question says that he wants his name removed OR he wants the car sold. So, it appears that the car being in his name is causing a problem for him. More likely, he is on the loan and it is affecting his ability to refi his house. He wants off the car loan. So, perhaps you and your mother can apply for a car loan and in essence refi the car loan? Or, trade it in on a newer vehicle that you and your mom would own?
Q. Can you get evicted from a rental during a national disaster such as the Covid 19 Pandemic?
A: Here is a big concern--if the landlord files for an eviction the filing will appear in the public records. So, even though the Courts are shut down for "non-essential" civil actions, and the Clerks are not currently issuing Writ of Possession, and the Sheriff's are not executing Writs p.reviously issued, you would have to explain to potential landlords in the future as to why the eviction case was filed. Sooner or later the Court system will ramp up again. One final thought--as a holdover tenant, you could be held liable to the landlord for TWICE the amount of rent
Q. Due to the covid-19 I have had to forgo my weekend visits with my two children. My ex is denying video chat.
A: So much depends on the Final Judgment ending the marriage. Did it make a provision to allow video? Did it incorporate a Marital Settlement Agreement that contained a provision to allow video? If not, as much as it might be detestable the refusal is not in contradiction to court order.
