TBochamp Posted October 12, 2019 Report Share Posted October 12, 2019 Five years ago my father gave me a used car that was in slightly better condition than the one I owned. I, in turn gifted my car to a friend for her son. I stupidly did not release liability and last Summer the car (which apparently was parked on their street with 4 flat tires, and still in my name) was towed. When I received the bill (which was eventually followed by a summons) from the tow company for about $4000 I freaked out and called my friend. We agreed that she would complete the DMV paperwork and release me of liability back to the original date, but before we could meet she went radio silent on me and has never responded since. Everything I read said that I was liable and basically "SOL" and that doesn't stand for Statute of Limitations. I froze and with my oldest of 3 daughters (who I raise alone) graduating and going off to college I buried my head in the sand. Bad move. Fast forward to today, I started a new job in January, I'm just about out of debt for the first time in... forever and hoping to buy a new car next year, but I'm worried about this haunting me. I'm hoping I can get some help with the following: 1. I don't understand the lines in the docket (attached) so I'm not sure what's happening and what comes next. Hoping for a translation. 2. Is there anything I can do on my own behalf at this juncture? TBochamp.pdf Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
