My estranged husband is trying to serve divorce papers right

Customer Question

My estranged husband is trying to serve divorce papers right now, and there is a car parked in front of my house with what looks like towing apparatus on the back. The car is in his name, but it was bought during the marriage. Can they take my car now before I have the papers or any proceedings have started? I'm in Texas. Thank you

Good afternoon. No, they should not be able to. If the vehicle was purchased during the course of the marriage, it would be a martial asset. Absent a court order or agreement for him to take it, he can not just take and tow the car. If he does, you can then proceed to go back to court or address this with the Judge once you are served and the Judge can order the car be returned.
