I don't think so.It may be part yours if you live in a community property state but there are only 7 of those,if I recall.I'm pretty sure that a car in his name only is his seperate property

Nope, the car legally belongs to whoever is listed on the Title. If you're still making payments on the car then legally the car belongs to the bank you're financing it through. If it's his name on the lease fromt eh bank then he is the one responsible for it. Now you can obtain permission to drive it legally, but unless your name is on the Title, the car does not belong to you.
