There is a simplified probate process that is commonly referred to as a "small estate affidavit"

Head to your county court with a copy of the death certificate, and will (if he had one). The clerk of the court can provide you the file the affidavit, that would allow you to head to motor vehicles and transfer title.

Well.........since I can't find the title, isn't there something else I have to do to get a copy of the original?

Before I transfer it?

Expert:  P. Simmons replied 1 year ago. can use the same document to allow you to request the title. (from the motor vehicles department)

Once you get the title...then you transfer it
