What rights does a woman have to loan information if she is to make payments to pay off a car that is in the ex-husbands name?

My girlfriend has to pay on her car which is in the ex-husband’s name until it is paid off, at which time he is required to sign the car title over to her. She has no access to payment history through the bank and he is uncooperative in the matter. He has called her and said there is a $200 late fee she must pay but when she last made a payment the bank told her the account was up to date until through to the end of next month. How can she obtain access to the loan information since she is the one paying on the account until it is paid off.

Okay, well your girlfriend needs to stand up for herself here and the only way that she may be able to do that is to go to court to have them order her ex to turn over a monthly statement prior to payment.  She has no rights with the bank here meaning that the court can not force them to add her or to send her any of the statements.  But she has a ton of leverage with this - a late or missed payment can ruin his credit - but it would also be violating the agreement and I can not advise you to do that.  If she is paying the bill she has a right to see what the bill is.  She does not have to rely on his representations.   But I think he may need a judge to tell him that.  Good luck.
