In a divorce, who has rights to the vehicles?

My ex-husband and I got our divorce done about 6 month ago. In the divorce it is not specific enough as to say who gets what. It says what is in the wife’s care or custody or control, or in wife’s name is the wifes. Same for the husband. I have 2 vehicles, an SUV and truck, both soley in my name. He has possession of the truck and he gave the suv to his so called dad. I have been trying to get possession of the vehicles and he won’t give them to me. He keeps saying they are his and he wants me to sign over the titles which I have yet to recieve from the car lot, they are paid for. We also have a house and property in both of our names, which he says he gets too. However, in our divorce it is not clearly stated.

You need to take the agreement or order to ana ttorney as soon as you possibly can with an eye toward modification and clarification.  If you do not you will be in court fighting on these matters forever.  The distribution should have been clear.  You understand that you are in a community property state which has some bearing on the matter.  But clearly the drafter of this agreement or order did not do you a favor.  No one can interpret the paperwork in this type of forum.  Get help.  Good luck.
