Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello, and welcome to JustAnswer! I am preparing your response. Please remain online for a few moments, so you can get your answer right away.
If the ownership of the car is specified in the divorce decree, your ex-wife has a legal obligation to sign over title to you. If she does not, she can be held in contempt of court and face the imposition of fines. It has been a long time since the divorce, however, and going through the courts may take a while, though you would be successful. You may be able to convince your ex-wife to sign over title based on the court decree and the fact that singing will allow her to avoid attorney fees and contempt motions and fees. That will be faster and easier for all involved. It makes the most sense for your ex-wife, so it will likely be a successful strategy.
Best of luck!

Sure, you can remind your ex that if she wants to remain on legal title, she will be legally responsible for the parking tickets that accrue as you will not be driviing/moving it.
