    Getting Ex Spouses name off car title

    What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Texas

    I paid off my vehicle last month and just received my title in the mail with mine and my ex husband's name on it, written as:

    "My name OR Ex-husband's name"

    This vehicle was purchased in July 2005. We separated in April 2006, divorce finalized June 2006. I never had vehicle refinanced out of his name due to our home going into forclosure during divorce and ending up with a horrible credit rating.

    I have paid on the vehicle over 5 years with my own funds and have statements/bank account information to document proof.

    My questions are:

    1.) What is the standard procedure to have title taken out of spouse's name if he willingly agrees (which I am counting on)?

    2.) Should he not agree, and expect portion of any future sales money on vehicle, what procedures do I take to have his name taken off title?

    Actually because it says "or" instead of "and" you really have less of a problem than you would have if it had said "and". You can sell the car on your own, or turn it in as a trade-in, on your own, without getting his signature.

    If the car was awarded to you in the property settlement agreement, then he cannot make any claim on any of the proceeds.
