    Question Auto title transfer after death without will

    My 18 y/o son just called to tell me that my ex-wife is going to let him have her Dad's truck. Apparently, when he died last year, he didn't have a will. However, he wasn't married and my ex-wife is an only child.

    She hasn't done anything to transfer the title into her name since his death.

    What do I have to do to get the title transferred into my son's name?

    Nothing. He is 18, let him learn to do for himself. After all, he is dealing with his mother, right? So he can tell her that in order to put insurance on it, he needs the title in his name or else she has to put him on her insurance along with the truck. She has to do that or it won't be insured and if she doesn't want to deal with that, then she is better off putting the title in his name. Why? Because if she wants to insure the truck and not pay for him on her insurance, then when he has an accident, and you know he will...then it is gonna suck for her. She is better off putting the title in his name and letting you pay for his insurance like it seems you are willing to do.
    But you should probably stay out of the negotiations between them unless you want to make things harder, Ag. Sheep get all pissy around your sort, and get all stubborn and $#@!.

    I would love for him to do this himself...However, my ex-wife is worthless about getting anything done...she's not just giving the truck to him with him on her insurance...

    So, if I don't help him, it won't get done...

    And he's going to pay for the insurance...

    This actually came up in conversation at lunch yesterday and none of us had any idea.

    Checking TxDMV, it looks like an Affadavit of Heirship might work (see "My spouse died...")?

    Title FAQs

    Looks like it would need to be signed by her (notarized).

    Yeah, it has something to do with the Affidavit of Heirship. The county vehicle registration office can give you a form, which is fairly self-explanatory. As I recall, if there are other heirs they all have to sign off agreeing to give title to that one person (although in this case since your ex is an only child that's not an issue).

    heres my noob question:

    How do you prove that you are an only child of a single deceased person, and thus the only heir?

    Obviously you need to get a notary to say "im an only child" but other than committing perjury by giving a false affidavit, how do you go about proving that your father didnt have any other children that you were aware of?

    KC,

    If it's worth it, you file an application to declare heirship. I think you have to sue the unknown heirs and serve them by publication. The court will appoint them an attorney.

    this is the answer to KCs question.

    As for the vehicle, unlike what the first responder says, you don't have to have the vehicle in his name for him to procure insurance. I would probably do my best to get it put in his name so that procuring insurance would be less $#@!bersome, but there is no requirement that this be done. In fact, he could go get insurance now on the vehicle and start driving it while you all sort out the title issue.
