Good evening. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. You do not have to just sign the papers and anything which you do sign, you MUST read. I say this because you could be agreeing to certain things and giving up certain rights, which may negatively effect you. Now, things acquired during the course of the marriage, would be consider martial assets. You both would have a legal right and share to them. If money was gifted to you BOTH, then you BOTH would be entitled to share in that money. The fact that she took it and put it into her own account, does not mean she gets to just keep it and you can assert your right to it, as part of the divorce settlement and ask that it be shared, along with any other assets.
