Question: I am married and my husband is very verbally abusive and I want him to leaveut the car I drive is in his name and I gave stage 4 cancer and a 14 year old does he have to provide me with that car until I can get one
Answer: Under Arizona State Law regarding separations or divorces, all individual property acquired by a spouse during a marriage is considered separate property of that spouse; so unfortunately, your husband is entitled to keeping his car; ARS 25-213. If you can prove that you have helped with payments towards the car, it may be possible to argue that the car is joint property, and you could possibly discuss the issue during mediation. If you are simply asking him to leave the house without filing for legal separation or a divorce, your husband is under no legal obligation to provide you with a car even considering your circumstances.
