Customer Question
My ex boyfriend is...

My ex boyfriend is trying to take my car back that he bought me when we were together. I have the signed title but he refuses to sigh the application for title transfer and sent off for another title, claiming it was lost or stolen.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And how old is the car?

Texas 2013

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No not that I'm aware of

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

He only threatens to take the car when he's mad at me and I'm tired of it.

Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that this happened.

Are both names on the title or only his?

Three H.Houston, TX

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
