Thanks for the additional information.
This will not be a problem, though it will involve a trip to the NJ Motor Vehicle Commission, if you want things done quickly.
First of all, you and your ex need to complete this form to apply for a Duplicate Certificate of Ownership
Take the completed form, along with a current or expired proof of registration, or a proof of insurance
on the vehicle, along with a check or money order---or cash---for $60 to the local MVC.
The MVC will process the application and issue you a duplicate title in a couple of weeks. At that time you can transfer the title to your ex the same as you would in any other transfer or sale.
Id time is not of the essence, then you can avoid the trip to the local MVC and you can mail the application and other items in to the address on the form but that will slow up the process.
I wish you the best in 2012.
