1 Answer from Attorneys
Based on what you have written, was the vehicle repoed after you where depolyed overseas? Did you provide notice to the note holder of the vehicle about your assertion of the Servicemember's Civil Relief Act (SCRA)? Did the lean holder obtain a court order allowing the reposession?
Assuming that you are the primary signor on the note and your father-in-law is the co-signer, then dependent upon the language of the agreement; either or both of you may be responsible for the outstanding balance. You need to more fully discuss your rights and options with a local law firm or Legal Service Office.
