Q: Best way to go about this
I bought my stepmom car for 2000.. and today she showed up with the police claiming that I never paid her anything and she wants the car back. She had the car towed off my property...
I have text messages from her saying the price of the car, me giving her mom, and are agreement
until we can get the title transferred over to my name..
Her and m dad are currently in there divorce court stages and I feel like she took the car because she wasn’t allowed to sell any assets in her name..
consult a local attorney, you can try this in small claims depending on your jurisdiction
make sure you have all documented and printed for presenting to the court
