Default My husband died and I gave the key and title

Texas

My husband died and I gave the key and title to his car to his son. The title does not have my name on it. It has my husband and his exgirlfriend on it. I want the car back from the son, to give it to her -- was it legal for me to give the key and title to my husband's son?

Texas is a community property state so you would have had a financial interest in any equity that there might have been. You may have waived that when you gave away the car.

You didn't own the car. If your husband didn't convey the car in a will, then it would likely have gone to his son under intestacy. How he would transfer title with the ex girlfriend's name on it is beyond me.

Frankly, I suggest you let it go and tell the girlfriend to go deal with the son if she wants the car.

You aren't going to be able to unravel this without paying a lawyer a lot of money.
