I need my ex to sign over a car to me and so how do I go about that, do I only need the registration?<br><br>
How do you check on who is the registered owner of a vehicle?<br><br>
We have to go to court tomorrow anyway

Ha! My ex was supposed to sign the car over to me when we did our separation agreement.....and um, I'm still waiting. I think the actual title of the car needs to be signed over to you...and then you can register it in your own name. But what do I know. I'm curious to see what the responses are...

I had to refinance the Jeep to get ex's name off the title. But that was only because he was being a pain about it.<br><br>
If your ex will nice about it, all he has to do is sign the back of the title, then you can take it to the tag office and get a new title with just your name on it.<br><br>
That was in Montana. Your state may vary.

We lost the car's title so I had to pay $25 to buy a new title. Then X will sign it over to me. I have to get a completely new registration (even though the current one has another yr left) and a new inspection. Oh well!

My X just had to sign the back of the title and I had to take it in to get new tags and registration. We did it all right in front of the DMV so we wouldn't have to have any more "face" time than necessary. He took his tags at the same time. I also had called my insurance company to change the auto insurance to my name only.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/sulkoff.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="tiptoe"> back to lurking <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/privateeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="private eyes">

Thanks so much, do you have any idea where I would find the title? Is that something that my ex would have in the car

Side note: You should never leave the title to your car in the glove box. Keep it somewhere safe in the house. If the title is in the car and it is stolen then the thief has the title and can essentially sign the car over to him/herself quite easily. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

X was supposed to sign car over to me. The loan was in his name only. I had no access to the loan. He stopped paying the loan and didn't sign the car over. Low and behold a flat bed showed up in my driveway and took my car. Now mind you I live in an extremely rural area, on a dirt road. 20min, from civilization. That sucked. I don't know how I could have done it differently in order to keep from being fooled
