Yes, you can. Before reporting it stolen I suggest you record (with her permission and knowledge of recording) that you want car otherwise it will be reported stolen. If she refuses to give you the car then you can report it stolen. I would check with local police or county police as some will not care and do nothing but get your car back without arresting spouse. It depends upon the state you reside in and the circumstances under which the vehicle came into her possession. Simply because the vehicle is in one spouse's name does not translate into the other spouse being liable for grand theft auto or any criminal act.

You'll need to report it stolen. The insurance provider will require a police report before they'll honor your claim.

No, if the wife is not an authorized user on the credit card then it does not affect the wife's credit report. So the late payment will only be on the husband credit report.

It doesn't matter whose name the car is under (or the insurance). If you are legally married, in the eyes of the law, neither of you have your own possessions...they are joint possessions. If you called the cops because your wife drove off in "your" car, they tell you it is a civil matter, not one for law enforcement. I have been through this :( Once you go to a lawyer and draw up papers regarding whose is what, and file a separation, then you can show those to the police and they can enforce it...but as long as you are legally married, you are SOL.

You only write on the envelope who you are addressing to. If you want to write to the wife, write down the wife's name only.

If the car is in her name and the husband took it without permission yes, you can report it but do you want the husband to have a record with the police, unless the couple lives apart and he is being annoying!Added: Once law enforcement learns that this is a lawfully married (or even common-law) husband/wife situation it is very likely that they will decline to accept the report as a violation of criminal law.It clearly involves a dispute between the two parties over their mutually owned possession, and is entirely a civil matter.AND, yes, this applies even in cases where the ownershp is solely in the name of the 'aggrieved' spouse.

When addressing a letter and envelope just to the wife then it should only have her name on it as it is personal. Example: Mrs. Jane Doe.

If the house is in your name or it is joined then you will have to report to the police, and make her open the lock in their presence.

No, as long as the child can prove the parent was able to, and did, loan the car. The wife would be lying to cause the false prosecution of the child to whom the car was loaned and she would have filed a false police report. However, unless the permission is in writing the child should stop using the car until the parent is able to confirm that permission was given and continued use is permitted.Another View: On the other hand, a spouse CAN file a report for the theft of marital property, if they knew or believed it to actually be stolen.However, if they knew at the time they made the report that the vehicle was in the possession of the child, yet maliciously filed the report anyway, they could be liable for prosecution for filing a False Police Report.
