Changing the name of the title from my ex husband to myself
Transfer Title and Register Vehicle
Hello I’m trying to see about changing the name of the tittle from my ex husband to myself. He never did the transfer himself. Can I do it with the divorce paperwork even if the cars tags are expired since 2021? . What would be the process?

If the title has your names separated by the word "OR", you can remove his name by simply providing a copy of your ID, signing the title over to yourself, and completing and signing the required title application(s). If your names are separate by the word "AND" or a slash (/), then you will either need his signature as "seller" on the title or you will need court issued documents indicating that you are the sole owner of the vehicle. Divorce papers alone may not be sufficient if they don't explicitly reference the VIN and additional vehicle details and clear reference as to who assumes ownership of the vehicle. Visit any tax collector's office, tag agency or eTags.com to complete the transfer or title and registration.
