Do NOT allow your name to be attached to vehicle your former spouse is driving post-separation

Any owner on the title of an automobile is liable for damage done by the driver.  Christensen v. Bowen, SC12-2078 (Fla. April 10, 2014).  Therefore, it is important to ensure your name is not still attached to a car driven by an ex-spouse post-separation.  Make sure your attorney knows how to draft the appropriate provision into your settlement agreement or court order.
