Shortly before my ex and I split, we refinanced our home and we had a joint bank account. After the split, I withdrew all of the money out of the account and opened up a new account, from which I used the money to pay for bills, i.e. mortgage/credit card bills (which he was using under my credit)/property taxes/ and money needed to support our child.
My ex husband is filing a complaint to seek half of the refinance money. Mind you, in the process of refinancing, he placed his name on the title and mixed it in with refinance papers. Come to find out i signed half of my home away (I cant prove that so I had to let it go).
My question is, since the money was deposited into our joint bank account (which gives us both FULL access to the account), technically and legally can I make any kind of withdrawal I want since we both had full access? My second question is can he sue me to recover half of the money? A single Mom in California
