It sounds as though you have a case similar to my husband’s when he and his ex split. His attorney filed for Divorce from Bed & Board, temporary custody, equitable distribution and child support all at the same time. It was the custody they had to go to mediation for, but their final agreement was all rolled into one order, with the exception of absolute divorce which has nothing to do with anything other than one year and one day separation.
Mediation is required before custody can be decided. My husband and his ex basically only agreed to the holiday visitations during mediation but nothing else. It is about child custody, not divorce.
I don’t believe that he is entitled to the car that was given to you as a gift, unless it was gifted to both of you.
The home purchased after your marriage by law has to have you both on the deed and is considered marital property. This must be divided, but if there is no equity in the home then there is nothing to split. The other car, if purchased after you were married is considered marital property also and that would be why he is entitled to use of it. Have your attorney ask the judge to put a time restriction on having that car refinanced out of your name. If he is going to be driving it have a stipulation that if it is not refinanced in a certain amount of time it will be sold and any profit will be divided as part of the marital assets.
Him not working while you were married would entitle him to alimony from you except for the fact that he admitted to you that he committed adultery in which he gives up his claim to alimony.
Divorce from bed and board is used by one spouse so that the other spouse will be forced to move from the marital home. In your case, it’s because of your husband’s infidelity. Basically means that you two are no longer responsible for providing for each other finacially or physically. If he has already moved from the home and you are not providing for him finacially then this is sort of after the fact.
Hope this helps! Good luck
