Just curious if I'm able to do anything about my wife's settlement money. She got it before the marriage and gets monthly checks. We used that money to rent for a bigger place than needed instead of saving throughout our 2 years of marriage, a year ago she took out a huge portion early cause we ran into trouble again. Now that i'm on my own. I don't have that much money and have to live paycheck to paycheck. She did help me during my first year living together before the marriage until i found a legit job. Then I was the consistent paycheck so she could go to school while she had a part-time and got her settlement check.
Now she's already living with either her new bf, friend or dad. Where she obviously can save a lot of money. I'm stuck in a state where I don't have the family around for 2.5k miles and I need my job so i need to stay. Is it worth getting a lawyer? If more info is needed to pursue this. Please let me know. Thanks
