Someone to help with registering car

Recommended Posts

I am slated to receive my temporary residency card finally sometime in the next week or so, and I bought a car about a month ago, went through the whole procedure but didn't register it yet.

 

I have all of the documents that I need except my residency card (soon) and I also have a proof of address, but not in my name, it's from the host of the Airbnb I am staying at now. 

 

I looked online to see the procedure, but I am afraid it might not work with a proof of address not in my name (water bill). The Airbnb host has been very lukewarm to me and I don't feel confident in asking her to help me out with any of this process. Is there a lawyer or a specialist in Zapopan/GDL that would be able to help me on short notice? Once I get my card I would like to drive back to Texas to visit family, I already missed Christmas and New Years, so I am anxious to get back. 

 

little note here at the end, getting a bank account also needs a proof of address, can I use one that's not in my name?

I suggest you call Spencer McMullen. He is a lawyer who has an office both here and in Zapopan, Guadalajara and writes on this forum as Intercasa.

What are his office hours? I might visit his office or give him a call tomorrow to ensure everything is in order. Thanks to both replies. 

 

Also do they need to see the car when registering? If I can't register it this time around, I probably won't bring the car back to GDL for a while, next time I am here I will probably be without the car, could I bring the paperwork and registered it while the car is in Texas?

 

Can they just accept a CURP or do I have to bring my residence card? I downloaded my recently issued CURP and wondering if I could print that out and just do it tomorrow.

Ferret gave you his local Chapala office #, 765-7553. Call that for an appointment as just dropping by is not what to do. They will tell you what you need. We use Spencer and his people for all our legal needs. In September they got a huge shipment of ours from Canada out of the clutches of Aduano.
