I'm not a Texas attorney, and the law and procedure vary a bit from state to state.  But it may be that you can get a temporary order putting a hold on the money, if you have a divorce filed -- or if you can get it filed right away.  This isn't always easy to do, and it depends a lot on the unique facts of your case, which you'll want to discuss with a lawyer in your area as soon as you can.  One place to find counsel is our website:  http://attorneypages.com

If you have the records to show how much money was there when the divorce was filed, he'll have to account for however much of it he uses.

The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
