Good evening,

While you certainly can request in a divorce that the vehicle be returned to you, as it was purchased during the marriage, it will be seen as a marital asset, and be split between the two of you. Ohio is an "equitable distribution state." Equitable distribution doesn't necessarily mean 50/50, just what is fair between the spouses.

So the court could order for example that the car be sold, and that the proceeds be split between the two of you. Or, the court could award you the car but order that you provide him other assets equal to his share of the vehicle (for example, a larger share of the money in your savings).

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
