My divorce was final 2 months ago, but neither my ex nor I have taken steps to close the joint account. Up to now, the balance was <$5 for months. My ex has deposited a large sum of money into this account- I believe, by mistake. My question is around consequences of transferring some of this $ into my personal savings account (at same bank).
I would not recommend taking the money. There could be major problems for you if you follow through with this plan.
Whether you are named on the account really does not matter.
