it is finianced in his name and the title is in his name, because he didnt want to go through the hassle of changing the plates on the vehicles. But I have proof from the car salesman that he gave it to me as a gift, and now that the car that is in my name is broke, he asked to use this one for the weekend while he had the kids, I did, and now he is refusing to give it back because it is in his name, and I am welcome to spend the $1000 to fix the car that is in my name. Can he do this?
Mr. Gornbein is correct.
Have you consulted with a lawyer?
Although the car may have been a gift, it is probably a marital asset. However, the equities of the situation may require that you use the car while the divorce is in progress and maybe thereafter. The court decides the equities if the parties do not.
