Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Hello JA Customer,
I am an expert here at Just Answer and I would be happy to answer your question.
Yes, you are absolutely entitled to seek the return of these funds. You need to file an emergency motion requesting that the court enter an order freezing the account where these funds are held. In the motion you need to allege that your husband has intentionally dissipated a large marital asset and that you believe it is a thinly veiled and deliberate attempt to keep you from receiving your share of these funds.
If you have not already done so, I would highly recommend that you hire a licensed family law attorney in your local jurisdiction to assist you with a hearing on the temporary relief motion discussed above.
I hope this helps, best of luck!

Yes, you can certainly address the disposition of any significant transfers such as this shortly before the dissolution of marriage action.
