Ex husband owns car, transfer title
Ask a Lawyer
QuestionCountry: United States of America
I have an 04 Chevy Malibu. It's in my ex-husbands name only. He helped me get it. I make the pmts and pay for the car insurance. We have a written agreement between us that after the car is paid off he will transfer the title to me. Which I'm sure he will. However, I'm afraid if something happened to him before that time I would lose the car. I understand that because its in his name it would go to his estate. I know he doesn't have a will. If our kids get his things I'm ok but if he were to remarry I'd be in trouble. What kind of legal document do we need to make sure I won't lose the car under the above possible circumstances?
