The pink slip proves ownership. The car is in his name (ownership), you'll have to give it to him.
In CA if a car is in my husband name but I pay the car note from my account for the last five months will I have to give him the car?
More than likely ! If it's in his name then it's actually his car. Kind of depends on how long you've owned it and how many payments have been made on it. If you've paid all the payments and can prove it, you may have a case.
