Before you begin divorce proceedings through a divorce lawyer it is important to understand that not all states have the same rules concerning the division of marital property. This is especially true if you live in a community property state since those states consider all property you own when entering the marriage as belonging to both parties except in very rare cases. Some states also have their own definitions of what actually falls into the category of marital property.

It is easy to get in over you head when you borrow money to buy the car. You may have spent too much, or perhaps you just got a high interest loan. In any case, there are ways to lower your monthly loan payments. Following are a few tips on how to refinance your auto loan.
If you’ve been thinking about refinancing, don’t put it off. Most auto loans require you to pay off most of the interest before the principal is reduced by much. For the first few years you’re basically paying off interest without lowering the actual amount you borrowed. So it won’t really do much good to refinance late into the loan, because by then you’re paying off the principal. Instead you should start early in the loan so you eat into the interest. Another thing to consider is that most finance companies won’t let you renegotiate a loan that is less than a certain amount of money. Check with your lender for details.
