Automobile joint owners


When there are 2 names on a car title and and the couple break up (not married) who has right of the car? Does one have more right over the other and can either one do something with the car without the other’s approval first? Thanks!


This forum is limited to the scope of family law, and since you are not married, this is not a family law issue. I can tell you generally though that as joint owners of the car you have to act jointly before selling, encumbering or otherwise disposing of the car. If you need further assistance, you should consult a general civil attorney.
