Both Of Our Cars Are In My Spouse’s Name. Can I Continue To Drive Mine After Filing For Divorce In Queens?

Couples often have good reasons to keep larger purchases in one spouse’s name, but when it’s time to divorce, this can lead to some confusion about who owns what.

When one or both cars were purchased during the marriage, even if your name isn’t on the title, they are considered marital assets.

Your spouse may choose to overlook this and try to keep you from using your vehicle, in which case your attorney can ask the judge for an order that allows you exclusive use of the car during the divorce.

This order will last until the divorce settlement is approved, and in most cases, you can expect to receive title of the vehicle as part of your settlement.

Divorce is disruptive, but it doesn’t have to mean that you’re taking the bus.

The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can protect you and your assets during and after the divorce.
