  1. If her name is on the title you most likely can't force her to sign over the title unless you had a contract that indicated what would be done with the car if you broke up. This is exactly why I recommend everything be in writing when you co-mingle property without marriage.

  2. If you can prove that you paid for it, then I'd think about suing her in small claims court under a theory of unjust enrichment.
