My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Texas
I'll try and make this as short as possible. Husband fell asleep in the car, police saw him and arrested him for old traffic warrants. They towed the car to the impound. Car insurance had just been canceled because the payment bounced, car title was never put in husband's name but we have the title with previous owner's signature, also the tags and inspection are expired. There is some paperwork in the car that we desperately need including social security cards, driver's licenses, etc. The impound lot won't let us retrieve the car or get the paperwork until the title is transferred to husband's name. Costs to transfer the title are expensive because we have to pay fines for waiting over 30 days to get it transferred. Husband was working doing deliveries in order to bring our income up, but now that the car is in impound he isn't able to do that. I know, we shouldn't have been driving without insurance, especially delivering; and we should've gotten the title transferred immediately after purchasing the car. We really messed up. What can we do, if anything, to at least get the paperwork out of the car? Is there any way to make payments, or could we talk to a judge - is that possible? Thank you ahead of time for any help you can suggest.
