My question involves court procedures for the state of: California
I have filed a small claims action against a former domestic partner whom I also have a permanent RO on for a year. I have copies of texts proving that he repeatedly promised to give me his used car and did so for my birthday. In relying on his gift, to my detriment, I turned in my previous vehicle at the end of the lease. He, without my knowledge, had me removed from the registration and title to the car since they were held in his name OR my name, not AND. Although I have possession of the car, I cannot sell it, trade it, or insure it.
1) Will the judge be able to order that he remove his name from the registration and title so the car is of use to me? He will not cooperate with me so whatever the decision is, I would like to know how it can be enforced.
2) If not, what are the likely options for the judge to consider? The order of money is of little value to me since he will refuse to pay me.
3) He has refused to give me household and furniture items I purchased and for which I have receipts. Are these items that can be awarded to me instead of a cash value being ordered?
