Customer Question
I have two more questions...
I have two more questions for you:If I am single and have two vehicles in my name. One is pretty much not working and I plan to report to DMV that it is not running probably worth about $500 bucks now. The other vehicle is probably worth $12,000 and I owe about $11,500. Am I in danger of losing the vehicle that is paid off? If I am in danger, could I transfer the title over to a family member who wants to fix it? How long do I have to do that before filing? Thanks again.

Am I in danger of losing the vehicle that is paid off?

Response 1: Yes, because you are only allowed to claim exemption for one car if you are filing as an individual.

If I am in danger, could I transfer the title over to a family member who wants to fix it?

Response 2: Yes.

How long do I have to do that before filing? Thanks again.

Response 3: Two years an one day. See 11 U.S.C. Section 548.

Kindly give a positive rating to my response so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for doing this.

Thank you for your cooperation.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
