More details to this question:
In 2014 I had to put my car's title in my mothers name, as my husband had been selling our property for drugs. I need to now (2019) file for bankruptcy but am not sure where to explain this. It shoukd be exempt so that is not an issue, I just want to be upfront with my details.

This needs to be handled very carefully and you need to hire experienced bankruptcy counsel to represent you. Most likely given that it has been over 4 years since you transferred the title to your mother, there will not be an issue with the vehicle.  But some bankruptcy trustees look  back 8 years on these types of things.  There are ways to "clean" this so it is not a problem, but it is too sensitive to provide legal advice in this forum without first having a comprehensive consultation.
