Welcome and thank you for your question!I am sorry to learn of this experience. Please clarify: is your name on the registration?
NAME ISXXXXX ON PAPER WORK BILLOF SALE
Thank you. How old is she?
Thank you. From a legal perspective, since your name is XXXXX XXXXX the registration, you have no legal right to possess the car.However, your daughter can give the car to you. You can have the car with her consent.Those the the legal considerations.As a practical matter, I would be SHOCKED if a police officer, prosecutor, and jury charged and convicted you with auto theft if you took the car under these circumstances.My mom always said that if I screwed up with my car, she knew how to use a screwdriver. Meaning she was going to take the license plate off ......... I never tested her on it but I knew she meant it.It has been my pleasure to assist you today with your information needs.
