Expert:  Roger replied 2 years ago.
Thanks.Technically speaking, yes you could make out charges against her for theft. However, most criminal court systems prefer that issues involving disputes between spouses during a divorce be addressed by civil courts rather than criminal.

Thus, don't be surprised if a judge transfers this case to civil court.
