This question involves an issues of transferring the title
of my mother's car from her to me in another state.
My 85 year old mother has come to live with me. I live in Baton Rouge, LA and she has moved her from Salina, KS where she lived for 20 years. My father died in 2009 and she lived alone from from then until last year when she came here. She owns a 2005 Dodge Caravan which was the last car she purchased with my dad. It was paid off a few months after my dad passed, and the lien was satisfied, but mom never got the title. In the months since she has been here, I ordered the title so we have it now.
So, since mother no longer drives and the car is now in Louisiana, she decided that she wants to donate the car to me, her daughter, and then I'll get Louisiana tags.
So, we went to the OMV this morning and ran into a big problem. The title is in both my mother and my father's names and even though it does say, "and/or", the guy at the omv said that Louisiana isn't an "or" state, it's only an "and" state. He said that the car is now owned by my mother and all the heirs (who are myself and my 4 brothers). And that we would have to have some kind of succession to satisfy that.
While I'm pretty sure that my bothers would not have a problem giving up their 1/10th right to this old car, I'm clueless as to how to proceed to take care of this. If someone could please help me, I'd appreciate it.
