Hi I just have a question I have a truck I put a lien and the dmv lady told me what I needed to do to proceed and put a lien on the truck so now I went back to put the truck back in my name because I wasn’t getting any payments from the person that I put a lien on I found out this lady at the dmv messed all the paper work and now the guy is owner of the truck what can I do??
JA: Regulations vary from place to place, so can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Arizona
JA: Was a citation issued? Was a court date set?
Customer: no I just found out yesterday and they just told me to go home that they would call today and I have not heard anything back
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: that’s it I’m just really frustrated I don’t know what to do I just want yo know what I can do now the other person is obviously not going to return the truck

Unfortunately, you will need to sue this buyer in court.  You can sue him to get the truck back.  The judge can enter an order putting title to the truck back in your name.

You will need to sue the buyer where he lives - in his county.

Unfortunately, no.  They are a state agency and have protection from suits via sovereign immunity.

You can visit your local DMV to see if they will correct it on their end.  However, you cannot sue them to force them to do so.
