Hi Shannon,

OK you probably need legal advice here and I am not providing that.

I would suspect that the owner is responsible for the debts being your husband. Also from memory you are legally required to transfer the rego within a few weeks after you sell it. So going to the RTA and stating she owns the car may not help you.

I know that sucks but you will have to

1. Pay the fines

2. Transfer the rego

3. Recover the money from his mother either though a court action or a better way.

Sorry ;(
