It is very important to insure it is set out in any separation who is responsible for what debt.

If it is not you can end up paying and have no recourse back to your former spouse.

Took me 2 years to pay off that lesson.

You still need to get the car out of impound. You have a limited time to do this before the impound lot puts a mechanic's lien on that vehicle. Once that happens, they'll be able to take possession of and sell your car, and you'll still be liable for the payments you owe to the finance company. If the finance company gets wind of this, they might repossess the car to avoid losing it over a mechanic's lien.
