We were married and then separated. Then after some time we went back together for a couple of months to try and work things out. She is now stating that I came back home when I found out she had money in her savings. During that time we were back together that money was spent and now she says I owe her that money. The savings acct was totally in her name. I never made a withdrawal. There was nothing said about that during our time together.
does she have grounds to sue me for the funds? Is there any statue of limitations?
