Vehicles purchased during marriage are considered community property and are divided as such. Current values can raise a lot of disagreements especially when one vehicle has mechanical issues or custom additions. Generally when the vehicles are divided, courts will require each spouse get the equivalent value. Therefore, if one car or boat is valued higher than the one the other spouse is receiving, the spouse getting the higher value will have to give the other an equalizing payment.
