Providence, UT asked in Family Law for Utah

Q: I have been the registered owner of a vehicle and paid for all the maintenance and insurance. she bought it who owns it

The title is in both our names, we are splitting up and now she want to keep the vehicle. She bought it so I could go back to work.

What I've spent on tires, insurance, registering and testing the vehicle is more than what she bought it for.

can I claim legal rights to the vehicle?

A: Are you married on were never married? I assume you aren't. If you are on the title then you have a legal right to. The question is now what kind of agreement you can come to split the vehicle. What you put into the vehicle are good factors to consider.
