Do you have to legally have proof of registration and insurance when getting your car out of impound? And if you can't get your registration cuz it's the weekend and you lost it is there any other way of showing them without showing registration to get the vehicle so you don't continue to get charged days impound.

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

Each impound lot has its own rules as far as what they require in order to allow a car out of their lot - but it's very typical to require both proof of registration and insurance before a car is released.

I'm unable to find the registration at this time I believe it was lost I do not want to continue to get charged for the days my car sits in there if I can get it out but it being the weekend I don't know how to go about getting registration I don't want to cause that to end up having more fees when I'm already tied up and not with tow fees so if you had any advice I would greatly appreciate it

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.
