the 80K was awarded to me for my social security disibility. 2 weeks after my daughter was born , my spine collapsed, I filed for visibility and it took 4 years, so I received that 80K, he renovated my kitchen with it and paid credit card bill with the rest. but he claims that the 4 years I did not work and he supported me, that the 80K was his to spend. I never spent a dime of that 80K he spent it as he saw fit.
