Default Legal Question...

My fiance has a 1991 Chevrolet C1500 2wd. The only special thing about this beater is that after the stock 305 blew, he installed a 350. The engine has about 15,000 miles on it. He'* had this truck since he turned 16, and he'd like to build it for the drag strip.

Enter the legal question. The title is in his name, but it'* in his mother'* safety deposit box in a bank. We have since fallen out of contact with his mother (for the love of God, don't ask) and need the title back in order to do anything with the thing. How can we go about getting it back, or should we just request a copy from the state? Please keep in mind that asking his mom to give it back is NOT an option...she won't do it.

HELP? :( Thanks in advance,
Christine

I would claim it was lost, or tell the whole story to the state, and just get a new one made.

Sounds like the money that might cost would be easier than the fight.

Sounds good to me, but the state is capable of sending out a copy, correct? Just double checking

Yes, as long as he is already the titled owner of record, it should not be too much of an issue.

Sheesh! You keep telling us not to ask, but then you taunt us with bits and pieces, lol!

Good luck with that.

You just have to apply for a lost title. A copy of the original doesn't work if you are going to sell it or something, but for a small fee the state will make another one for you. My customers have to do it all the time, it'* not very uncommon.

I don't want to bring up too much of the mama drama llama here. I try not to drag anyone'* name through the mud, even if they might deserve it!

Thank you ALL so very, very much!
