my brother is a federal inmate doing time in another state
he was convicted of drug distribution charges (no guns or violence involve)
he's wife just file for divorce and empty he's accounts, they have a house and a children together.
with him being in jail, does she has to split 50/50 evenly with him? including the money she has in her account from before she file for divorce?
Generally, during divorce, everything will be split evenly in terms of finances. If she emptied his accounts, then he can ask to be reimbursed his 50% share of said accounts.
I hope that helps. Good luck!
He would be best protected if he filed a Response and participated in the case to the best of his ability.
