Yes, there are good odds that as part of the divorce settlement, you’ll take ownership of one of the two cars, even if they are in your spouse’s name.
There can be complications that change that, such as if your spouse owned the cars prior to the marriage, or if they are valuable antiques or classic cars that are more of an investment that a means of transportation.
New York divorces are guided by so-called equitable distribution rules, which means that the spouses will each absorb a share of the assets, wealth, and liabilities of the marriage.
They may not be equal shares, but they should be equitable.
