As a general proposition, if the car was purchased during the marriage and your spouse has routinely used it as their personal vehicle, then it’s likely that if you take steps to prevent your spouse from using the vehicle that the judge in your case will order you to make it available to them.
At least in the short term, you should consider your situation when it comes to assets like cars to be status quo to where they were the day before your spouse filed, but understand that the value of those assets will come into play later.
If your spouse wants to keep the car, and the equivalent value, that can work for you in the eventual settlement.
An experienced Brooklyn divorce attorney can make sure that you are acting within the guidelines of all court orders related to your divorce, and will protect your interests in the eventual settlement.
