Ex spouse (never married) - agreed in writing via/lawyers - to split real estate 50/50 - then stole $20,000.00 from my sale of my home via a joint bank account. She never used this account until she saw that the house sold. She admitted via text messaging that she did in fact take it to "teach me a lesson". The sale went through 1/22/19 and account emptied 2/3/19. Please help me. Thank you for your time.
You will have to go to court to prove the money was not hers to take. You appear to already have a lawyer---speak to your lawyer about options.
