All assets which were acquired during a marriage are subject to equitable distribution as marital assets except in certain cases (such as gifts and inheritances). If the car was purchased during the marriage, you could gain it even if it is under your ex-husband's name. If your ex-husband owned it prior to the marriage, it may be a more difficult situation. The fact that you have made all payments on it including the insurance could work in your favor to "win" the car, but there is no guaranty.
