Customer Question
I was in grief...

I was in grief over death. I gave my car away to a guy and signed over title. For some reason I did not record his information. He was going to re register it. Now the DMV is suing me for 2 years registration fees. Is there a way they can track down this vehicle? I haven't seen it in two years. I want to get rid of this liability. I wrote them a letter months ago explaining the situation but they essentially ignored it and now I get a letter asking for the same info that I do not have and double the payment! What can I do?

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

California. I'm sorry but I moved and I do not have the guy's information. I am assuming he re registered it. Is there a way to track it down?

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

No they are just asking for information I do not have and two years registration fees and I haven't even driven it in two years.

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

I just don't know what to do--I explained everything to them in a letter and basically asked for mercy. I am still dealing with the death of 3 people close to me.

I was hoping for a more complete answer than "No." I was hoping to be told what I could do about my problem--not just that DMV couldn't track it. What do I do about fixing the problem of lost documents. Sorry if I was not clear.

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.
