I have a car that my deceased father owned which is titled in Maryland. He left the car in Maryland for the use of a relative when he moved in with me due to illness. At the time of his death in California, where I live,the estate
was quite small <$10,000 and therefore met the state criteria for no need to formally probate
(no will). The original plan was to transfer car ownership to relative but that is no longer the plan.
JA: Working with a will can seem daunting, but getting the right information now can only help. Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?
Customer: Current plan is to sell to a family friend who lives in NJ. They know have the title, the release of lien certificate, the death certificate but stated another form is neede to complete the transcation at DMV.
JA: Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: Is this the surrogate short form that I read about on-line or is it something else?
JA: Is there anything else the Estate Lawyer should be aware of?
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Estate Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
