My ex transferred the funds without my signature from the Title Company to an account in his name only. I have extensive legal fees associated with proving that money is mine during my divorce trial. In addition, I was forced to cash in my IRA (interest + penalty + future earnings) because I did not have access to that cash. How liable is the Title Company? What is the statue of limitations on this?

I have my best friend that lives in iowa me and him went out drinking at club downtown dsm that has cameras outside the building with the clubs in them covering entrances and side walk where people hangout after leaving club or to smoke cigarettes or call ride or something recently added cameras well we were at club drinking by 1:30 I went out smoke cig he stayed inside on dance floor and I needed up helping someone use their phone to get Uber because I wasn't drunk had only couple and it became close to 1:45 1:50 ish so last call was over people leaving I ran back up I had VIP so they let me back in to find my friend couldn't locate him so went back down the main entrance ( there is back entrance too) in corner that wouldn't be as Loud called his cell phone couple times and messaged him he finally answered my third call but wasn't talking to me I heard him saying officer I got punched idk what happened why am I being held and etc.. while I was yelling his name get his attention finally says hey I said where are you he said back entrance and gave meLocation I said I'll be there don't say anything else or talk to the cops at all I'm your ride home and ran to area he said he was and saw some people ( drunks from club ) and others gathered around and ambulance there with a cop car and officer standing infront of my friend and another standing near them but kept walking away to car to the crowed and stuff being busy asking questions or whatever he was doing so I go up to my friend seeing he isn't in handcuffs asked him what's going on like I just got there and suprised by the situation and the fact that his lip had busted and was bleeding he said nothing I got punched knocked out and when I came to it the cops were hovering over me and now I'm here I asked who punched him he said he didn't know someone had snuked him ( meaning getting punched by someone while he was talking to someone else or was doing something else and not in confrontation with guy who assaulted him) and I said why he said he really has no idea I said ok got officers attention who was guarding him asking him same question he said it's being investigated and I asked anyone else in custody or are you guys holding someone else in this incident he said not at moment I said well I'm his roommate was here to pick him up and give him ride home so if he isn't under arrest he should come with me officer said no he can't leave I said is he under arrest he said do u see him in handcuffs I said no so why can't he leave with me and he said it's being investigated step back don't mess or ( used different word ) with investigation and so I started thinking of anything to get officers in the wrong I said has anyone checked his mouth cause paramedics where standing couple feet away by ambulance and could hear everything we were saying and officer said he refused a check up so I asked my friend ( from now calling my friend Matt) if he refused he said no I said he hasn't refused why won't you guys check his injury his mouth paramedics ignoring me I said it again why? While IGot closer to Matt and officer and stuff to get a response the officer turns to me pushes me to the side walk says stand here don't come into street so I pulled my phone out started recording now asking matt hey you want you mouth checked he saying yea I do while you can see the blood run from his lip to almost his chin few inches and a little swollen lip and then me saying he wants his mouth checked I'm recording this while I step closer and close get response and better view on camera not realizing I'm off side walk asking Matt same question and saying why isn't he being treated orLooked at and why are you paramedics just standing there and officer again gets frustrated and pushes me back on side walk says record all you want but this is last warning stay there don't come any closer and I have all this on recording and while all this is going on at a time you can hear the officer ask the other officer so what are we getting him for or something like that meaning what are we arresting matt for because now he is in handcuffs ( handcuffs got put on him right before I started recording) without giving him reason for arrest at time and then walking away with him at end of video saying getting him for disorderly conduct and i said you can't arrest him for that when I was here toPick him up waiting for him to come downstairs from club and he gets assaulted so that is reason you guys show up in first place because he was knocked out lying on side walk or street and without arresting the guy or investing to find person who did this and being on his side as they should have been cause he was victim they make a case on him using disorderly conduct just so they have a arrest so they can say they have done their job . Well after they arrested him they never read him his rights and searched him finding a small amount of cocain .so they end up charging him with disorderly C and possession CS
