Is she entitled to any of the value of the new car come the final orders?

Asked almost 4 years ago - Parker, CO

We now have Temporary Orders stating that we are both responsible for our own debt from here on out. Being the only one employed I pay maintenance, child support and ½ her attorney’s fees. She has been in possession of the only vehicle. I new need a new one to get to work. If I buy one in my name because we are still legally married is she entitled to it or the value of it come the final orders?

    Answered . Anything you buy during the marriage with money earned during the marriage is considered marital property. Until the divorce is over it may be advisable to lease rather than purchase a vehicle. Generally, the Court will award each party their respective vehicles in the divorce taking into consideration any equity you have in this particular asset.
