Our expert says:
Another example of how real-life complexities can out-do soapies in unlikely twists. It sounds ethically dubious for the attorney to have become involved with you - you don't say WHAT your ex was arested for, but if it was in relation to his abuse of you, then such a relationship was especially dubious. Professionals have a duty to recognize when their patients / clients are especially vulnerable, and to take special care not to expliot such vulnerabilities.
And now one of the complicaions - I don't understand at all whose car this actually is, but you need legal advice, and not from him. Check if there's a free law clinic at your neaest law school.
If you bought and paid for the car, then it is yours and he has no right to use it, and should return it as soon as you ask. That he chose to spend extra money on it is not really relevant, as it was done without your consent or request.
Lawyers are usually at least well-enough paid to be able to afford a car - as you live apart, do you know where all his money gets spent ? Has he anoher family and household, perhaps ? I agree with those readers who say he might be a more skilled and subtle abuser.
