If the money is still liquid ( sitting in a joint account ), you should make sure your spouse cannot withdraw it without your consent. The best thing would be to divide it now before it “disappears.”
If it has been spent on marital matters, such as home renovations, college tuitionyou’re your child, a family car, etc., you have no claim to it. If it was spent on his personal vacation trip to Hawaii with his “buddies,” you may have a legitimate claim for half the proceeds.
