Question

  09/03/12, 10:10 am
My wife and I are in the process of a divorce. I bought a car a few years back and she refinanced it for me with her father consigning! I have made every payment on the car. I have a temporary court order that says, "each party is awarded the use of vehicles in his/her possession. Each party shall be responsible for all expenses as to the vehicles in his/her possession, including car payments, maintenance, registration and insurance." I am relocateing to Florida for my job. They are trying to tell me I can't leave the state with the car. And trying to say they want the car back. Her bank is in possession of the title. I don't want to keep paying on this car if there a chance I could be screwed over once the car is paid off. What are my options. Any help will be greatly appreciated. P.s. she is a very spiteful woman!

The car is marital property subject to equitable division in New Hampshire. You have current possession of the car but only until the divorce is final. The car will be subject to division depending on your case. I suggest you contact an attorney.

Technically you don't own the car right now. However, you have a valid claim at taking ownership through the divorce process. This will ultimately be decided by the wording of your final divorce decree.
