Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi,I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. Please be patient while I compose a reply for you.
If the police have an investigative hold on the car because they believe your boyfriend used it as the means to commit a crime, then you'd have to go to the police and/or to the prosecutor who is handling the case against your boyfriend and try to get them to release the car to you as the innocent owner of the vehicle.
If it's being held for evidence, you would have to wait until your boyfriend's case is over to get it, but you should be allowed to get your property if it is not being held as evidence of the crime as well.
Sometimes, even if it's not evidence and even with a prosecutor's release, the police will not give up the car without a court order. That means it may ultimately take a lawyer to bring an action forcing them to give you back the car.
Just checking in to see if you need more help or any clarification of my answer. If so, please reply here on this question thread.
