Q: My aunt willed me a car. Shes 99. Lawyers gave me the car. She can't drive. Now she is freaking out. Wants it back

Saying she "willed" you the car implies that she passed away. If she is alive and the car is in her name then the legal way to transfer it is for her to sign the title over to you. If she has not done that then she still owns the car. Speak with a local lawyer for more specific advice.

You should have a lawyer look at the actual protective order to be certain. That much said, if it gives her sole possession of the house, then you would be prohibited from going there - even if she is at work, or on vacation, or for any reason.

I am not trying to be glib, but VERY CAREFULLY. Anything you say could result in a slander/libel suit against you by your former spouse. She has already shown that she is litigious, and ready to grind an ax (according to your post) so what does she have to lose by suing you for any post you put.... Read more »

When we bought the house it was tenants in common with right of survivorship after we divorced it automatically converted to tenants in common with 50/50 ownership. Now that we remarried each other will it reconvert to tenants in common with right of survivorship!

Interesting question. In my opinion as a family law attorney, remarriage does not automatically "reconvert" the property title. You might consider executing a Quitclaim Deed - both as grantors and both as grantees to give you both equal rights as "Tenants by the Entireties,"... Read more »
