DearCustomer- I'm not certain of the value of the car but if you file for a divorce you can claim half of the value of the car as marital property. You can't force him to change the title but you probably have enough evidence with the insurance and the actual possession of the vehicle that he has paid for the car. You could even call the sister as a witness and force her to testify. Most people will not risk a perjury charge to lie about something like this.

 

Until you file for divorce you have no legal way to get him to do anything, Certainly thee are more issue in the divorce than a car but you should get credit for half its value.
