Welcome to JA!
I will try to best answer your question.
If the loan was taken out after the date of marriage and before the date of separation it is considered marital debt subject to division between the parties. It is treated just like an asset. This is assuming that the proceeds of the personal loan were used for marital purposes.
I hope that this information is helpful and I wish you the best of luck.
What specific court is the matter pending in?
If the otherside wont recognize it you may have to litigate that issue.
Yes, you can supply evidence of the alleged loan. Good evidence is proof the other party provided monies to you. This can be done through bank records. The next is proof of payments back to the person you borrowed from. If you have proof of payments via check signed by Wife that is very good evidence as she will have to explain why she was providing this money if it was not a repayment of the loan.
The master should review the facts. Cheap statements without evidence or basis in fact is nothing more than an opinion. Everyone has an opinion but courts are supposed to rely upon facts and evidence first where available and presented.
