During the pedent lite hearing, we were told not to get rid of any assets. I recently learned that my husband told our 17 year old that he was giving his vehicle to him and that when he got his license he could get it. My husband bought another work vehicle after. 1) If my husband has problems, accidents, or tickets while the vehicle is in our son's name, will it become a problem for our son? 2) Was it lawful for my husband to change the title over to our son after the judge said not to get rid of any assets?
1) Yes. If your son allows his father to use the vehicle knowing that his father is unlicensed, he could be liable for...

I was charged with 3rd DWI in 10 years but plead guilty to 2nd DWI in 5 in court. All of the DWI's occurred within 10 years but due to a clerical error by the magistrates office they were unable to have the 1st DWI certified before my court date. Since I plead guilty to the 2nd the judge notified me I will have my license suspended for 3 years and will be able to obtain a restricted license after the 1st year with an ignition interlock. I've checked with the DMV and on my compliance summary it says I must petition the court for a restricted after 3 years or wait 5 years for a full restoration.
