Car gifted, but title not transferred?

A while back, my soon-to-be ex-wife inherited some money, and with part of that bought me a car. She made a big production out of gifting the car to me at a restaurant, told everyone about the gift, wrote in an email that she "gave" me the car, and repeatedly had told me specifically that the car is mine. But she was a reclusive alcoholic, and never actually got around to transferring the title.

Now that we're divorcing, she claims the car is her separate property. I of course believe the car is *my* separate property. We're in Texas.

Any thoughts how that will play out?

sorry

You will probably not have any rights to that car simply because it is in her name solely. I was in something similar; I cashed out my 401k for 30 grand the year before my divorce. Since it was in my name only guess who gets stuck with paying state taxes this year on the whole amount now that I file alone? Me. Even though over half of the 30 grand was spent on paying "our" credit card bills and other expenses (which I can verify). I wouldn't fight it too hard unless it's some really awesome vehicle. No one said these things would be easy but since it's in her name not really much you can do. Sorry dude hang in there!

Property might be different?

Good morning:

I think it's different with real property, at least here in Texas. So my lawyer says, anyway.

The house is in my name, and so is the condo she lives in. Then there's the question of it being a gift -- which would make it my sole property.

But thanks for your response, I'll keep that in mind. Gosh, I hope you are mistaken!
