Married for 18 years. Money from his retirement account was withdrawn before we separated for us to pay Bill's after separation. He blocked me access to his checking account where the money was deposited and refused to transfer my half into our joint account or my personal account.
Of course, and he likely should do that as it gives him some leverage in negotiating with you. Unless there is a court order or other enforceable agreement to the contrary, then right now there is no 'your half' and it is, as you say "his retirement". You should go consult with a local family law...Read more »
