Well, CAB do know what they are doing and are well aware of this web- site.
Exactly what your step-daughter should do depends on the details of her case. For example, if the repossession was more than six years ago, she can probably just ignore the letters and only worry about having to do anything if the Grabby National issues a summons.
There is no particular reason that her current husband's finances should be involved - this is not an issue that concerns him. Given that your daughter is partially disabled, it would seem unlikely that the Grabby or its lawyers would actually carry out a court threat. But that won't stop them making threats. That is the way Grabby operates, or rather, that is the way Grabby has agreed that its lawyers should operate.
Read the site for a detailed explanation of why the threats will continue even though they may have no intention of going to court.
