Go back to your divorce attorney to see what the court can do to make your ex comply.

Unless he was ordered to refinance the car in your divorce decree, you probably can't force him to do it. Not to be too much of a pessimist, but it would be a bit unusual for a divorce decree to order refinancing because the judge can't force a lender to approve his credit application. About the best any judge was likely to do would have been to order him to make reasonable efforts to get the car refinanced.
