Tampering with registration papers...

I am just livid right now. Just found my registration papers for one of my horses that I had not sent in yet to change ownership from his past owner, and I found that my vegneful and mean ex added his name on the papers. Can I use white out to take it off?? What do I do? He did it as he says he is entitled to 50% their worth, which is very little, and so he can try to take the horses from me in court, which is a complete joke as he doesn't even know how to put a freaking halter on and has nothing to do with them. What people will do to hurt others is shameful.

What breed of horse are the papers for? I would check with the registration department that issued the papers. If it is just written on it is likely not valid as many registrations are all printed on then sent. Any changes of ownership has to be done through paperwork not just writing your name on the paper. The change in ownership on any I have seen is an added sticker to the qwnership lines on the papers.

Marking on the papers, either by writing a name in or using white-out doesn't mean anything as that doesn't reflect the information that the registry has. Papers are a printout of the information at a registry. If he hand wrote his name on the papers, just ask for a new copy from the registry and don't say anything.

Edited to add. Registry papers are also not proof of ownership. It's not like a car registration.

This is the back of the registration papers that the old owner filled out when she sent the horse, and she wrote my name as the new owner. I was sending them in this week and where she (past owner) wrote my name, now his name is there as well. So when I send these papers in to register him with my name, my ex's name is there as well. I think I will just call APHA tomorrow.

I don't know the answer to this but what she's saying is that the registration hadn't yet been changed from the previous owner but he signed the papers she needs to send in to change it, right?

I was alwaus under the impression that registration papers don't denote ownership outside of the society. Do you have a bill of sale?

I don't know where the bill of sale is, but I can contact the lady who I bought him from and get another one easily. I've been in contact with her a few times since I purchased him.

You should be able to cross out his name without issues, if you can do it neatly. You will most likely also be sending in a membership form with only your name on it which will correspond with your name on the transfer (from the back side of the registration papers).

But if you can get the previous owner to sign a new transfer report, then there would be no questions at the APHA office.
