My daughter recently move from Puerto Rico to Texas. We

My daughter recently move from Puerto Rico to Texas. We tried to register her car that was shipped from Puerto Rico (a U.S. Territory) and the TXDOT is requesting a US Dot form HS-7 to complete the process. Apparently this form is a release requirement for vehicles imported from a foreign country but not for US Territories. The moving company responsible for the shipment confirmed that the HS-7 is not required. I will go back this Monday to try to register the car, but without any written documentation to show them that the form is waived, it will be very difficult to prove the point. I tried finding information on several US Government websites without any success. Can you help me?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: Texas. The car is 5 years oldJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Not yetJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I don't think of any additional information. I found a Fact Sheet from Pennsylvania Dot that mentioned something about US territories being exempt from the imports regulations.

We are settling an estate in Florida. There is an automobile

Good afternoon. We are settling an estate in Florida. There is an automobile involved we have tried to donate to a Veteran Org. We found there is a lien on the automobile. Investigation found that a towing company impounded an abandoned motor scooter allegedly registered to the deceased. After contacting them I was told that they picked it up, held it 60 days, disposed of it and placed a lien on the automobile. This gets more complicated because the deceased was ill and could not drive the scooter. Additionally the scooter has been in disrepair in his garage for the past three years. A check with the local police revealed that they had not ordered the pick up. We would like the lien released so that we can dispose of the automobile. Can you offer any advice.Thank you.

Our son lives in Morgantown. He used my husband's 2005 Jeep

Our son lives in Morgantown. He used my husband's 2005 Jeep throughout college and is now a permanent resident in WV. The car is still registered to my husband in NJ. We want him to transfer the title to our son. My husband plans to send the title, indicating "gift" on the back, so that he can transfer the title to WV and in his name. There is a legal issue with his license - can he register the car anyway, while waiting for his license? (We just moved to FL and are canceling our NJ auto insurance, so he will be without any until his issue is resolved. He does not plan to drive the car until then.) Thanks.JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: West Virginia, car is 11 years old.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Not regarding our "shaking him loose" off of our liability. He had a DUI from 2 years ago, and is still waiting for reinstatement of his license. He hired a lawyer at that time, and I believe that as a first offense, some of the record of that (though I am not sure about that) is expunged... We want him to do the waiting and handling of that, but want to properly remove this car from my husband's name.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I've read that while a driver may think that all is "well" because no nasty letters arrive and the criminal record is "smoothed over" somewhat, it does not mean the DMV is on board with anything. We don't know if that is because his license was from NJ, while the ticket was in WV, or what...He walks to work, but clearly needs to move forward with his life.

On Friday I receive a ticket for not stopping at a stop

On Friday I receive a ticket for not stopping at a stop sign, this is the same street I drive everyday at my town. I recall I had stop and decided against making the left turn and went straight instead. The traffic cop stop me when I was half way down the street. This is my first ticket for non stop at red. What should I do? the officer told me to pay the ticket and I won't receive any points. But is this the normal process? Should I go to the court and plead guilty and pay the fine or should I hire a laywer?JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: NY state at Nassau county at Port WashingtonJA: Do you need to appear in court?Customer: Yes I have a court date of Sept 30JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I was never told what I did until the ticket was given to me should I be concern or this is normal practice?

Today a detective called said I bought it illegally and they can confiscate it. The guy had the title not a request for duplicat or anything like that. He said he bought it from one of two brothers going through and inheritence dispute and the brother sold it to him the detective said the other brother had legal executor rights to it and detective said they can take it from me if the DA and other brother donot file a civil suit against the other brother. How can they? Maybe the brothers are running a scam selling stuff and splitting the money and taking the stuff back?JA: What state is this in?
