I am in the middle of a divorce from an abusive husband. I hid some money in a bank account and know my husband wants it. What do I do?



Well, it is considered marital, if you acquired the money during the marriage. So there is no much you can do - except that a court will divide property in an equitable manner. So, if you needed the money to get away from the abuse, you can use that a reason and defense to why you squirreled it away.
