I have full legal and physical custody of my two minor children. My ex-husband co-owns a car with my children. It is a very long story I won't get into, except to say it is the result of a settlement after lengthy litigation.
The car is titled in the name of my ex and child 1 and child 2. Not "and/or", but "and".
It has come to my attention that my ex-husband is about to sell the vehicle behind our backs. Not sure if he's going to forget the children's signatures, or sign "on their behalf as their parent".
My question is: Can a parent, who does not have legal custody, sign a car title on behalf of his children? Or would that be fraud, forgery, or whatever you want to call it?
And yes, I understand I can sue him civilly for the value of the car. It isn't worth it, he's a deadbeat and there's no point throwing good money after bad money for yet another judgment that isn't worth the paper it's written on. However, I was wondering if it might be possible to pursue him criminally for selling a vehicle that's partially owned by my children.
