2 weeks ago my ex husband said he would buy me a car after his bankruptcy was finished. We have lived together for 8 years now. Last week he moved out, changed his address, will not speak to me and is now evicting us. I had no idea he would evict us or move out. He also signed his title to his truck for me then went and got a new title. Nothing was put into writing. He has been supporting us for years.
If you have a title, the actual paper title, that he signed over to you, you might be able to fight the existence of the new title. And keep ownership of the truck. But it would be difficult. If the truck is valued around $5000 you could do this in small claims court. Otherwise you should get an attorney. You should get an attorney to protect your rights in the property you are renting. You likely have 30 days to move. Good luck,
Ms. Nepton is licensed to practice law in Michigan. The response herein is not legal advice and does not create an attorney/client relationship. The response is in the form of legal education and is intended to provide general information. Oftentimes the question does not include significant and important facts and timelines that, if known, could significantly change the reply and make it unsuitable. Ms. Nepton strongly advises the questioner to confer with an attorney in order to ensure proper advice is received.
If he signed the title over to you and you possess the original title, then you need to register the truck immediately and then call the police and state it is stolen. As to the eviction, you have no claim. You have 30 days to move.
I would like more facts. On its face the truck should be yours as he signed over the title and his affidavit of loss is fraudulent. As to the eviction, most probably he is within his rights. Confer with an attorney with all of the facts and documentation.
To the PROSPECTIVE client, please call with more details, and for an appointment. My PRELIMINARY answer to your question(s) is for general purposes and based upon the information you have conveyed. It is based on such limited information that it is a general answer, and should not be relied upon as a reason for your action or inaction. My response does NOT establish an attorney-client relationship and such may only be established by mutual agreement, and the signing of a written retainer agreement, which will generally require payment for our services, as this is what we do for a living and, just like you, we must get paid for our work.
