Car title question


#1

Our absolute divorce will occur sometime this month. If my home sells and I am able to find a new home to purchase, I plan to get a loan on my car to have enough for a down payment. The car is currently titled in both of our names. Since we do not have a signed separation agreement, do I need his permission to get this loan, and/or to cash the check for the loan? What do I need to do to get him off of the title of my car?


#2

The car is martial property and you cannot encumber the same without the other spouse’s consent, or release the title to you by singing the same over to you in the designated place on the back of the title.

Will this be the same situation once we are legally divorced?


#4

Yes.
