I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. What do you mean by "what are my rights"?

Are you asking if you can ask the divorce court to consider that $10K when they divide the marital estate?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
He bought the truck when there was a restraining order against incurring further debt.

Excuse me ,but did you not read the rest of the question?And why are you asking me about the money when you stated your 18 years experience?Is that money part of what I am entitled to?And I don't appreciate being talked down to when I am paying for this service!!!!How is he allowed to make large purchases with a restraining order in place.

Ma'am I am not sure why you are so frustrated. But I certainly apologize for anything I may have typed that caused it.

I was simply trying to understand your specific question.

You never mentioned a restraining order prior to your last there a restraining order in place? If so what does it provide?

Thank you
And did this action incur a "debt"? That is, did he take out a loan or promise to pay as part of this transaction?
