Default He Will Take Me to Court for My Vehicle

We've been separated a year. He's had my vehicle for that long and refuses to give it back. He has his own vehicle, I have mine. This car is 12 years old, worth less than $3,000.00, but it is in very good condition. (At least it was last time I drove it.) I've been paying insurance on it as per instructions of a former lawyer.

Both his lawyer and mine had a first time meeting last week. My lawyer was informed that he absolutely refuses to give up the vehicle. My to be ex threatens to take me to court in order to keep it (or give it away.) Meanwhile, for the whole time I've been wanting to give the vehicle to our son's wife, as our son is out of work and she needs another vehicle in order to get to and from work, to support 3 young boys, her husband and herself. Her vehicle is definitely not in good condition.

Since my new lawyer and I had a lot of other more pressing financial matters to speak about, (my to be ex is not being forthcoming in some large assets), this vehicle was only mentioned briefly.

After the phone conversation, I keep thinking "How can he get away with this...the vehicle is in my name...wouldn't he be laughed out of court?"

Thanks murphyslaw. Yes, the vehicle is in my name. I had been thinking of going over to his apartment and checking to see if it's in the lot. I have a feeling he has decided to give it to someone else.

Do you have a spare key? This exact situation happened to my sister. I literally drove her over to her car (which was parked at her ex's new place) and she left with it. He then went to her house to demand the car back, she called the police and they informed him it was her car, they did give him time to take any personal items out of it.

hmm how in the hell does he plan to do that when you have to sign the ownership over unless the person is using it just for parts??? I hope you have a spare set of keys to the car and once you get it back a secure place to park it. I wouldnt trust him to give you the keys or not to have copies of the keys and try and take the car when you are not around. Hope it works out for you.

This is what I'm concerned about...my to be ex has been physically violent with me, and he has been advised (no restraining order issued), to stay away from the house. If I did take the car, he just might come to the door and all hell would break loose. I live alone, in my late 60's and finally have peace after 42 years of living with an abusive and controlling sob.

you said you were giving it to family so maybe as soon as you get it, give it to them??

I do have spare keys. I really don't want to sign over the ownership, and if I indeed did not sign, he'd likely make it even more difficult for me re: revealing his assets for equalization.

okay you are confusing me, do you want the car or not?? It sounds like you are willing to sign the ownership over just so he doesnt hide assets. Hate to break it to you but if he is that type of person, he will do it car or no car.

That's true Standing. You're very discerning. I'll speak to my lawyer further about this. If I do decide to get the car, I'll make sure my daughter-in-law and son are with me.

As mentioned in my first post, I would like to know if he has a valid case regarding bringing this to court.
