Domestic Violence

questions & answers

Question: I am living with my fiancee. I owe him 2400 for things he purchased for me including a car. The situatin at home has gotten to where I no longer want to be there. He signed and agreement with me saying I would pay him back $100 per paycheck until monies were paid. I would like to leave asap from his home with my child and take the car. He holds the title in his name. Can I legally leave with the car since it is not paid off yet. The agreement was not notorized

Answer: If the vehicle is not in your name, you have no registration or license plate in your name, it could be reported stolen if you leave.  If you feel you are in danger and must leave, you can contact the AZ Coalition to end Sexual & Domestic Violence at 800-782-640.  They can assist you in leaving the home safely.
