    If you report it stolen, youre open to a lawsuit..

    Not only that but you'd be filing a false report. This is illegal in any state.

    Unauthorized use of vehicle is NOT a civil matter.

    Re: My wife sold the car

    If the new owner has not registered it in his or her name, you cannot find out. In fact, you may be even liable for any accidents that may occur while its under your name. This happened to my mom a while back.

    I remove the license plates to any car that I sell.

    You can try to run the license plate thru the DMV website. I'm not sure if this is public information in your state though.

    Good luck and from experience it is that I recommend you to move on. Leave that phase of your life behind you. It was what it was, as good or bad as it may have been.

    Make this an opportunity for YOU.

    State laws vary. What state are you in?

    Generally if the car was in her name she has the right to sell it. I don't think you can reverse a sale unless it was done by fraud. IE: she forged your name on the title. If the buyer paid fair market value, or close to it, and had no knowledge of any wrongdoing, most courts won't reverse the sale.

    The divorce agreement is enforceable by your states family court. What was the wording of the particular section that said the car was to go to your daughter? Some states have automatic restraining orders during a divorce that prevents the dissipation of assets. While she might be held in contempt, your daughter may only receive the money that the car was sold for, but you might receive the lawyers fees for prosecuting the contempt.

    Good luck.
