Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. There might be a slight
delay between your follow ups and my replies as I am typing out my answer, or taking a quick break. Please remember that this is general information only - not legal advice - so no attorney-client relationship has formed.
I am sorry for your situation. Because she took your vehicle after divorce and the decree does not mention this issue, this may
be seen as a matter between two parties in civil (non-family) courts.Civil Court
At this point, you have the right to file a Petition for Judicial Sale
(or local jurisdictional version) to sell your vehicle by force and then split the profits. Because her name is XXXXX XXXXX title as well, she has equal rights to it and this would be the only way to resolve the problem.
However, normally, a letter from an attorney threatening
to sue for judicial sale and also file a criminal complaint (latter is a bluff because since this was not theft, the police may not get involved) should scare her into returning the vehicle.
Finally, since the vehicle belongs to you, you may simply peacefully and without invading her territory find the vehicle and drive off with it.Family Court
You may file a Motion for Clarification
, serve her, and have the Court come up with an equitable arrangement for the vehicle in a post-judgment supplemental order.
I hope this finds you well. If you still need information, hit reply
so we can chat more until you are satisfied. If you are satisfied, please
