Both of our family cars were in my soon to be ex-husband's name and so are the loans. I am trying to get one car in my name and since I do not have the capital to buy it outright, I planned to get another loan (in my name)which means I would have to pay sales tax again. This seems dumb, since we already paid sales tax on the car once. Is there any way to get around this, either by transferring title/lien in divorce decree or transferring before divorce?

This is going to depend on state/local law. Check with the office that handles registrations.
