  1. Best answer

    This is really a criminal matter unfortunately. If he will not return the funds, report him to the local authorities. You can also talk to the attorney who helped you with the settlement in the first place - if the insurance company was negligent in allowing your husband to get the check in the first place, they may be liable to you for any funds your husband uses or you are unable to collect. Good luck
