Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.You are absolutely right that you leave whenever you wish. Since you are a legal adult who is competent and whose rights were not take way by the courts or via probation or other disciplinary measures, you can just leave at any time. Plus, since the vehicles are community property in your marriage, you can simply take the key and leave in one of them (if you can still drive and operate a vehicle). It isn't neglect or abuse for him to keep the vehicle from you, but at the same time you have no obligation to honor that request and you can take the vehicle out. If he blocked you in, get a tow truck to tow his car out of the way. The probation officer is correct, this is a civil matter, but you can most definitely get his car removed and simply drive away.Good luck.
