Ex served me with divorce papers last month. I haven't even had the chance to serve my preliminary disclosures (I've received theirs though). One of the issues I knew we were going to have was who would get the SUV. I just received a change of address notice from the court letting me know that ex has picked up and moved to Oregon (our divorce is in California). Title is in both our names and I'm wondering if ex can sell the car without my signature. I'm also wondering about their registering the vehicle in Oregon - since it's in both our names, can they re-register w/o my signature?
That depends on how it's registered --and, or "or". And on Oregon law. Not a family law question...

The proper response to your question directly relates to the precise form of title on the vehicle. As for Oregon vehicle registration, you need to confirm Oregon law with an Oregon attorney.
