According to the Civil and Family Codes, the property owned by the spouses is their joint property. In this case, property acquired before marriage or received as a gift by one of the spouses is the personal property of one of the spouses.

How to re-register a car for a wife


Step 1

If you and your wife bought a car, then this is your joint property. But at the same time, the car is an indivisible thing. This means that in the event of a divorce, the car will remain with one of the spouses (by agreement, and in the absence of consent, the court will determine), which will be obliged to pay the other spouse half of the cost. Accordingly, since cars are indivisible property, when registering with the traffic police, only one person can be indicated in the registration certificate as the owner (owner) of the vehicle.

Step 2

In life, a situation may arise when it is better to re-register the car for your spouse. For example, a wife belongs to the category of citizens who are provided with a transport tax exemption. If the car is registered in the name of his wife, then it will reduce or not pay transport tax at all. And if you are in arrears on any compulsory payments or on a loan that can be recovered from you through the court, then the bailiff, having received a writ of execution, will first arrest the car. Of course, if the car was purchased in marriage, then half of its value will be returned to your wife after the sale of the car at auction, but this is unlikely to greatly console you.

Step 3

To re-register the car for your wife, draw up a donation agreement. Many advisers in the old fashioned way recommend to draw up a sales contract. Do not listen to them - such a deal is more likely to arouse suspicion: it is stupid for a spouse to buy something from another spouse. Moreover, since 2006, real estate and cars received as a gift from family members and close relatives are not subject to personal income tax.

Step 4

In the contract, indicate your and your spouses' surnames, first names and patronymics, passport data, place of residence, as well as the make of the car, year of manufacture, engine and chassis number, state number.

Step 5

Then, with an application for removing the car from the register, a passport, a receipt for payment of the state duty, a donation agreement, a vehicle passport (PTS) and a registration certificate, contact the registration department of the State Traffic Inspectorate.

Step 6

After removing the car from the register, your wife must already apply for the registration of the vehicle and the same set of documents. The car will be registered to your wife, and from that moment she will become its owner.
