My wife and I separated after I told her that I want a divorce. At lunch the next day, my debit card associated with my checking account was declined at a restaurant. The bank informed me that my wife had withdrawn everything from the account early that morning. She’s not listed as an owner of the account, because I worked for that money, while my wife is just a housewife. I did list her as a signatory, so she could sign my checks to take care of the household bills. The bank and the police say she didn’t do anything illegal. Doesn’t the money belong to me? What can the divorce court do about it, when a wife steals money that she didn’t work for?
