Must spouse repay money taken from bank account?
Sometimes, in a divorce, if the money has been taken and used, it may not be possible to get it back. However, the court can always credit the amount taken against the assets your husband or wife would have received. So if you have a total of $50,000 in assets between you, and he or she took $25,000, he or she’s already gotten his or her half of the assets. You will not have to split up the remaining $25,000. Again, for example, if you had $500 and he or she spent all of it, there are ways that you can ask the court for other relief to make up for that. You may be able to obtain it from non-marital assets.
