Your husband is not entitled to any gift or inheritance you received during your marriage amd it is not considered "marital property", unless you comingled it with marital property, Ex. You received $10,000 inheritance and you kept it in a separate account - It remains yours and yours alone.
But, consider this Ex. You receive $10,000 inheritance and deposit it in a bank account that has both your name and your husband's name. Yu have comingled the proert and it has lost its character as an "Inheritance".
If your husband has done nothing to harm you physically or mentally, you cannot gt a restraining Order because the law says that you are both entitled to occupy the marital residence.
