Mom will not release her unused and unusable (by her) car without signing over the title to Son’s ex. Her desperation with transportation is very high, but Mom won’t budge. Ex said she can have the car insured immediately, but Mom thinks if she gets into a car accident, Mom will be held responsible.
It puts me in a serious bind, because no one else seems to understand how this process works and I apparently am unable to explain it. There are three forms we need, one is a request to transfer title without a title (we have no idea where the title to the car is), then there is the release of liability, then we have to fill out another form explaining why Mom isn’t on the title, then take it all to the DMV with the death certificate. The only thing I’m not sure about is whether they are going to request a marriage license. That would just push off transferring the title of the car for at least another month.
Son is getting upset, ex is getting freaked out,and I feel I am smack in the middle, Mom is scared of getting stuck with a huge bill
