It might be difficult, if he won't sign the appropriate document, such a quitclaim deed; exactly what you need would depend on where the timeshare is located and how it's organized.
Sometimes, what you need to do in a situation like this, is sue him for reimbursement of his half of the payments, because it's possible that, as co-owners of the property, you have the right to get that from him. At that point, of course, he just might be much more interested in simply signing a piece of paper and walking away from the whole thing.
You need to talk to a lawyer, preferably one who practices in whatever state the timeshare property is located. He or she will be able to give you reliable advice, based on all of the facts of your case, and make sure that the paperwork on the timeshare is corrected properly.
