A: If you need legal help regarding your vehicle and proof of ownership, there are several options you can consider:

Contact a qualified attorney: An attorney who specializes in motor vehicle law can provide guidance on issues related to proof of ownership, including issues with vehicle titles, registration, and other documentation. An attorney can also represent you in legal proceedings related to your vehicle, such as disputes over ownership or claims against your insurance.

Seek assistance from a legal aid organization: There are many non-profit legal aid organizations that provide free or low-cost legal assistance to individuals who cannot afford an attorney. These organizations may be able to provide guidance on issues related to vehicle ownership and documentation.

Contact your state DMV: The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) in your state may be able to provide guidance on issues related to vehicle titles, registration, and other documentation. They may also be able to assist you with resolving disputes related to vehicle ownership or registration.

Consider mediation or arbitration: If you are involved in a dispute related to your vehicle, mediation or arbitration may be a cost-effective way to resolve the issue without going to court. Mediation and arbitration services may be available through your state DMV or through a private mediator or arbitration service.

In general, it is important to seek legal help as soon as possible if you are facing issues related to your vehicle and proof of ownership. An attorney or other legal professional can help you understand your rights and options, and can provide guidance on how to protect your interests and resolve the issue.

A: A starting point could be to contact the Department of Motor Vehicles to learn what forms or documents are needed. Your matter sounds like it might involve obtaining a title - hopefully DMV could offer more specific guidance based on your situation. Good luck
