My wife has my car, divorce coming but we are still legally married; can I take back the car without her consent?
It is titled and registered and insured in my name. We have not filed any divorce papers yet. She lives in a different state. Can I take the car without her permission?
You probably cannot since the car may be considered marital property subject to "equitable" distribution between you and your wife under Montana law. If she files for divorce in another state, the car still may be considered marital property.
Generally, marital property is any property acquired during the marriage. There are some exceptions. A court usually determines if the property qualifies as marital or separate.
