Do I have to...

Do I have to return old license plate to DMV? Recently transferred title from TX to AZ (got new plate). I am wondering if I can keep my old plates (TX) (and possibly send them to collector in Europe) or do I have to return them.

Lawyer's Assistant: Regulations vary from place to place, so can you tell me what state this is in?

Im in AZ.

Lawyer's Assistant: Do you need to appear in court?

No

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

No, i don't think so

Good morning. No, Texas does not require you surrender the old plates. You could do what you want with them but it is encouraged that you destroy them so that they are not used by someone else, in a wrongful way, as you could be liable and it could fall back on you. It would be at your discretion to send them to a collector if you trust them but you do not need to return them.

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.

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.
