    *I bought a car its a cadillac and paid 3,000 down but couldn't get it financed in my name So my boyfriend volunteered to let me put it in his name and soon as the deal was done he took it away from me and I am not even allowed to have the keys or drive it. I dont know what to do but I can't leave with no car and I refuse to just give this bastard my car or all the money I have paid into it

    I didn't see a section for civil law questions so property was as close as it got, I thought

    If you put the title in his name only, unfortunately it is his car legally.

    Debra, @disagreeable is right... it's unfortunate, but if you put the car into your boyfriend's name, then he legally owns the car. So the next question becomes this...

    1. What state are you located in? Depending on the state, you could hold forth that you're married and hence have joint rights to property. For example, in the state of Texas, you can simply hold forth that you're married and hence have joint property rights in the state. But it just depends on a number of factors.
    2. Does he have anything in your name?
    3. Next, what other leverage do you have in case that you don't have other legal options?
