Thank you for sharing. I’m angry at your ex after reading your story. Good job getting even a part of money back from him. Curious, what guidance did you receive during the process? There are so many things to think of during divorce, but I feel that the closing of accounts and removing names from joint ownership should be #1 and #1A. The stories about joint home ownership and the related mortgage after divorce are the worst. At that point, it is a business transaction and should be treated as such.
