I was dating someone and living with them for a short period of time! During that time he purchased a vehicle from his ex wife for me as a gift to get back and forth with my kids. he gave me the title to transfer it from her name to mine! The title and insurance have been in my name for about a month now and Now that i have left he is asking for it back saying that it has been reported stolen. Is there anyway him or his ex wife can report the vehicle stolen or take it back?
If the title is in your name and the transfer of title was done legitimately, then the car is yours. Just make sure that you have the title handy to show to anyone that shows up and additionally, I would suggest you the park car in a place that will make it impossible to tow.

If the car is titled to you and you only, then no, the car cannot be taken from you.
If the title is in your name, that is your car.
