Forging a title must be a criminal act. Both seller and buyer have responsibilities.

The act of forgery is the big concern in my opinion. I do not know how California works, but in North Carolina the DMV always requires things of this nature to be notarized. This means a notary somewhere would have to lie about both parties signing the document. I would assume that would be a huge offense for the notary. Does California require the seller signatures to be notarized in order to transfer title ownership?

I still feel sorry for the pet owners in the waiting room who panicked when I waltzed in with the police in tow..one lady took her dog and ran outta there...hehe. It was then a argument between the animal shelter and the "new owner" regarding reimbursement of the adoption fees etc...

To SpottedEagle, Maybe I missed it, but do you know "how" the Airstreams were advertised/sold? Ebay? Local newspaper ad near where the ex lives? Craig's list? I would think Ebay might be of some assistance since it's "titled" property, they certainly would have a moral obligation to do so. CL will be of absolutely no assistance. Newspapers can't do much for you. Have you checked her relatives back yards? Do you have any suspicions at all about who the buyer(s) might be?

Is it possible that they weren't actually sold (yet) and they have just been moved out of spite?

Maybe if you posted a couple pictures here it would be helpful. Some vintage Airstreams like yours have unique modifications/dents/whatever that make them stand out. Many of the folks here can spot those types of things a mile away.

Just thinking out loud.

Jim

There's no way to say this next bit without sounding like a creep, but I'll try.

I would think that since you were given legal, temporary, custody of the objects mentioned, anybody else trying to exercise control over them would be in violation of a court order. That's criminal activity. Transferring the property without your consent would also be criminal. Remember the horse thief related above? Maybe the local sheriff would like to hear your story.

The Judge in this case would have the full power and authority to get to the bottom of this in your next hearing if she/he has the gumption. Assumption is that you all are appearing in a "regular" Family Law Court (however that's defined where you live). I once saw a Judge throw a mother in jail for not allowing the father his visitation rights with the kids. He literally had her hand-cuffed by the bailiff and escorted to the hoosegow for several hours until she regained her proper bearing. Sometimes the Judge does the right thing all the way 'round.....and sometimes, well, you know the rest.

Can you tell I used to be a Legal Assistant? That was half a lifetime ago. I lasted about four years. Couldn't take it any longer and moved on. It's a, um, crazy profession (trying to stay within the rules of the Forum here).

I am so, so sorry that you are going thru this. Protect that boy, no matter what else happens. We have a bunch of kids and grandkids. They are most precious things in our lives, and I thank God every day for them.

Jim

All great points, and I agree completely.

Be sure to bring up these facts in your next hearing. I would guess that your attorney would need to formalize it in a filing with the court, accusing the other side of violating the Order. Judges don't like being given the middle finger. Present it factually and completely, not emotionally.

This sounds all too familiar, unfortunately. My hopes for you that both sides will cooperate for your son's sake are pretty low. One side cannot make that happen, and if the other side has no real interest in making it happen, it won't be pretty. BUT, I still encourage YOU to maintain your composure, so that years down the road your son can see that you acted as a man with integrity.

One of the last things I was told by my ex as we were on the way to divorcing was, "I don't have anything to use against you except the kids, and I will." She lived up to that, to everyone's detriment. Do what you can to do the right thing.
In our case, the State required divorcing parents to attend a workshop that focused on what TO do and what NOT to do related to affecting children involved in the divorce. My ex seemed to flip all of that around backwards, as well as taking all of the DON'Ts mentioned in a book called Divorce Poison and using it as a how-to guide.

May God bless you and your "right" efforts!

Messy Divorce-70 Safari, 67 overlander sales?

I apologize for trying to benefit from someone's misfortune, but at least it's not at their expense. My only purpose is to try to avoid legal hassles for myself or another member in the future. California does not require signatures on a pink slip to be notarized. I'm sure that if you bought a used Airstream and one of the signatures on the pink slip was found to be forged, you would lose the Airstream and your only recourse would be against the party you paid the money to (the forger, in other words). Good luck with that. Even though California does not require signatures on a pink slip to be notarized, there is nothing preventing you from requiring notarization of the signatures of any of the owners who don't sign in your presence. For those who are present, I would keep photocopies of their picture ID's.

I'm sure that prior to reading this, I would feel safe if I had the pink slip signed off by all listed owners. But after hearing this sad tale, I would now go the extra step above, at least.

In Georgia, if the vehicle is over 10 years old, you don't need a title, just a bill of sale. This includes RV's. The presumption is that if it's that old, it's considered abandoned or the title is lost.

I wonder if there is a national database of stolen vehicles? My point being, I wonder if the state runs the VIN against a database of some kind before issuing a new title. And maybe SpottedEagle could possibly report it as "stolen" and have it added to said (possibly mythical) database.

With all this well intentioned free legal advice it would be nice to hear the other side of the story. Opinions might change.

Just kidding, best of luck... Been there before, the heartache fades and life gets sunny again. Don't stoop, you'll only look like a stooge!
