My question involves vehicle registration or title in the state of: Florida
I have a 2005 Chuanl 150cc scooter that was never registered. It was taken in on trade for work performed valued at $400. I was given a bill of sale for $400 and the Certificate of Origin for a Vehicle that is signed by the dealer with a blank purchaser name. The previous owner purchased it in 2006 from China. No taxes or registration has been paid. DMV will not allow me to register without a Florida Title proving ownership. Previous owner isn't willing to go through the hoops to get a title for it and he doesn't have a bill of sale from the original dealer back in 2006. I called Chaunl of America (listed as dealer) and they said they don't keep records. I want to register it and DMV said that they need a title or they can do it with a court order of ownership.
How do I compose a motion to the courts petitioning for legal ownership? I want to do it myself without the assistance of an attorney.
