What happens to car loans in a divorce?

Question Details: So my soon-to-be ex-husband has filed for a divorce or so he says. I haven't received paperwork. We lived in CO but now I am back in NM. He's still in CO. He got me a car under his name only when we were married. So I'm not on the loan or registration at all. I agreed to make payment on it and I even said we can do a legal document stating hat I'm responsible. Ever since I moved back home he threatens to take the car and starts being verbally abusive. I don't need the car but I agreed to not hurt his credit. Now, with him always changing his mind and trying to take it and then saying I have to pay it it's my responsibility, I don't want the car or to deal with him anymore. Am I responsible for it? Would the judge make me responsible?
