You should contact the loan company and ask how to go about this. I don't know if proof of filing for a legal separation at the courthouse would be sufficient. They (loan co.) may require a dissolution of marriage along with a copy of the MSA (marriage settlement agreement) that stipulates the car was awarded to you. Good Luck!

How can you find out if you are a co-buyer or a cosigner on a car loan and would your name be on the title and registration if you are a cosigner?

Easy, you can check your own credit report OR go to a registries office and do a quick search. A simpler method is to ask the person that is the primary borrower/buyer or call the lender. Either a cosigner or co-buyer can be listed on the title depending upon the agreement made by the persons involved. The title to a vehicle determines ownership, a cosigner generally has no vested interest in the property only the responsibility of the debt.

No, a cosigner does not have any legal rights to the vehicle, but does have the legal obligation to repay the debt if the primary borrower defaults on the contract. An exception could be if the cosigner is also named on the title to the vehicle, and if so, how the title is worded.

Control in what sense? Sell them, transfer title? The cosigner guarantee's the loan on the vehicles and would need to agree to selling them and sign the title. You can use them for any purpose, do anything with them including burning them. You will still be responsible for the loan and if not you the cosigner will have to pay the loan off.

NO, the ONLY rights a co-signor has is to pay off the loan if the debtor defaults. Unless, they are listed on the title. Two different ballgames.

How can you transfer the title to the co-signer?

Thsi depends on who is actually listed on the title alone. If the cosigner appears second or not at all on the title, then the title transfer can be done at the DMV, showing the vehicle was "sold" to the co-signer. This will update the title and registration of the vehicle. Now, if the co-signer also wants to be the sole payee on the car loan, the co-sighner would need to refinance the auto-loan in their name alone and be approved.
