You are absolutely correct, Anonymous. Thanks for bringing my error to my attention.

Florida is not a community property state. Nor a common law state.You can choose not to pay for the car, but the lender has the right to reposess it.

Yes, you are responsible for your husband's debt even though you did not incur it given that you live in a community property state. If you do not want the vehicle or cannot afford to keep it, I recommend that you give it back to the lender.
