Hi there,
My ex and I own a car and both of us are on the CALIFORNIAN registration.
We have agreed that he would keep it and pay me half of the car value.

What do I need to do (in terms of documents) to make sure I am off the registration and have nothing to do with this car anymore (in terms of liability...)??

Thanks

Hello again Pauline --

He must have the original title to the car -- you just turn it over and have both owners (you and him) sign it over to the new owner (him) and then he must turn it into the DMV where they will issue him a new title in his name. It is not very complicated at all when there is no loan involved (much more complicated with a loan in both names).

is there a fee associated to the new registration?

Hello there

Yes, there is always a fee associated with getting a new title and registration -- less than $100 for both. You may have to sign a separate paper that states that it is an interfamily transfer to avoid any sales tax -- but that is about it.
