My wife and I maybe getting a divorice. We have two vechicles. One is a truck that is in her name only from before we met. The second is in both our names. I am the father of a 6 year old with full custody and she is the step mom. Anyway, could she end up getting both vehicles or would she get the vechicle with only her name and I would get the one with both our names on it?

Hello -

Thank you for contacting JustAnswer. My name is Michael; I look forward to helping you with your legal problem today.

There would be no reason for her to get both vehicles. Minnesota is an "equitable distribution state" which means title does not matter and the vehicles will be divided equitably. If there are two cars, they are usually split between the spouses.

Good luck,

Regards,

Michael

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
