Divorce: How to Keep Your Car


Divorce has got to be one of the greatest hardships that one can endure. Losing a spouse, and perhaps even children at the same time, is a tragedy that I, as a happily married man, can’t begin to fathom. As an attorney, though, I know it’s important to be able to put the emotion aside and focus on the pragmatic when going through a divorce, so as to be able to begin a new life in as favorable a position as possible. This is particularly true when collectible or exotic cars are involved, as one spouse may feel a deep attachment to the vehicles, and the other spouse may have no interest, or worse, use this attachment as a weapon. As an enthusiast, the only way I can imagine to make a divorce any harder would be to lose a spouse and a collector car in the same “transaction.”
