Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello. My name is ***** *****
Thank you for your question.
I will be happy to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Do you have a legal question that I can answer for you about the situation you have described in your post?
Thank you for your follow up.
Why would the original owner of the motorcycle decided to give motorcycle as a gift to your husband without getting anything in return? For what reason?
When was original title signed over to your husband as gift?
What is the current market value of this motorcycle?
Is the bike completely paid off?
When was original title signed over to the husband? How long ago?
Is your name anywhere on the title?
Generally, only the person to whom the original title was signed over as a gift would have any legal standing to pursue a lawsuit to quiet title of the motorcycle and such person would need to file a lawsuit in the local court where the owner who requested duplicate title resided.
The judge will review all of the evidence, facts and testimony related to the dispute and will rule according to the law and evidence presented.
I wish you the best of luck!
Can you clarify as to what your actual legal question is?
Unfortunately, there is no general forms that can be used when it comes to filing a lawsuit to quiet title to a motorcycle and all of the forms, including complaint, discovery, etc...would have to be drafted according to each specific case and that is why the court clerk has instructed you to retain an attorney, since the court does not have the forms that can be simply filled out and filed.
So, if your husband is unable to hire a private attorney, then he can contact Florida Bar at www.floridabar.org and ask for the list of pro bono (free) attorneys, contact local legal aid society for free or low cost legal service or you or your husband can also visit local law library (located at your local court house and or local law school and there is one in Ave Maria close to Naples, Florida) and do some research and obtain some sample forms and law librarian should be able to at least point you to the right material.
