I am sorry to hear about this situation. Did you and he have a written agreement that he would sign over the title to the vehicle to you? Or, was this a VERBAL agreement?

This is not an answer, but an information request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. Thank you in advance.

this is my son thru marriage. we spoke in person while he was in town for visit. he stated to his dad that he had mailed title to incorrect address, but would put it in the mail the next day. That was 2 months ago....

Can you please tell me exactly what the contract says? Why you purchased it for him, why he has to give you the title, who has the car, who are the parties, etc?
