    Question How to Recover a Car in Your Name, Awarded to Your Spouse

    My question involves a marriage in the state of: Wisconsin

    My husband and I are legally separated and are escalating it to a divorce at the end of the month.

    He was awarded use of one of our cars, but the car loan and title is in my name only. How do I get the car back from him? He's currently making the payments, but has missed a couple since he moved out. Our 17 year old son wants the car. My husband can't get a loan in his name because his credit is bad. I have to fight him every month to get the money for the insurance, too. Can I legally take the car back, even though he was given it in the Marital Property Settlement? Can I start making the payments, instead of him and then take the car back? I don't want him to have a car that's in my name, as I worry he will default and it will ruin my credit. His ignorance and irresponsibility has already lowered my score by over 20 points because of the missed payments.

    If he was awarded the use of the car, to get it back you would have to seek the court modify its order.

    And the odds of the court modifying it's order are not strong. Its not impossible but its not strong.
