Spouse won't sign car title


#1

My husband and I are seperated via restraining order with plans to divorce in 6 months. The vehicle he is driving is in titled and registered in my name and I have requested that he sign the title and accept ownership but he will not. He has not paid the taxes and I cannot confirm if the vehicle is insured. If I contact the insurance co with this information they may cancel his policy. I am afraid of him getting into an accident or accumulating tickets.

Can I go to motor vehicle and cancel the registration? Can I have the car towed and remove the tags? I want to do everything legally.

I suggest you file an action for equitable distribution to have the car awarded to you, and you can then sell the same ( the court will not force him to take ownership of the vehicle if he does not want it).
