Based only on the facts provided in your inquiry, generally, yes, you and your wife may use such property acquired during your marriage. Unless she has some court order prohibiting your use of the property, restraining order, or other order restricting your living in the marital residence, use of vehicles, etc., you may use the vehicle, assuming you are covered on the auto insurance, etc. Advised to consult a family law attorney regarding resolution through marital settlement agreement as part of a dissolution.
