Maya:
You can get a duplicate title if you are on the title with an "or" between you and the other owner. "Or" gives you both the right to transfer the title without the other person's permission.

You could then apply for a new title in your own name, removing the other person but this is a separate action from the duplicate title

Entidtil:
You have it backwards. If the names are separated by the word "or", then either person may get a duplicate title, sell the vehicle or remove the other name. If the names are separated by the word "and", then it would require BOTH people's signatures to get a duplicate title, sell the vehicle or change the title.

Yes it is legal, since the title was in both names with an (or) so you or him can get a duplicate title, or one of you could have sold the vehicle w/out the other signing.

Problem is, you are an EX, so it appears you was not married, thus he took what he "believed" was his. But you are pregnant, so may need the car to get to the doctor for (both) of your babies well being.

Honey, you need to make an appointment with a family lawyer of your legal rights, which may mean he needs to pay support for your baby, when born, or to pay for your OB visits, due to the pregnancy.

Look, if you paid $4,000 and he paid only $800, then odds are he will not pay child support for his baby. You may need to talk to the prosecutor in your state to have him pay child support when baby is born. The prosectors office can garnish wages, or take from his taxes and pay you.

Most lawyers will give you 1 free short consult of your legal rights.

No that would be fraud. Messing with State documents is taken quite seriously too.
