He cannot remove your name from the loan without paying it off and refinancing it. And he does not need your permission to refinance the loan into his name. You would have to sign over the title to him. But it would make no difference in the divorce whose name is on the loan or the title, since the car would be considered marital property either way. Use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain a local divorce attorney who can answer your questions about the divorce process and marital property is determined and divided, so you can properly prepare for the divorce.
