Re: Spouse unauthorized credit card expenses
First of all, I'm so sorry this is happening to you. Something like this happened to me on a much smaller scale.
1. Have you separated ALL your accounts? If she is taking money out of your checking account a few months ago, I suspect not. Believe me, i get the impulse to want to think your spouse WON'T financially devastate you. Unfortunately when it comes to divorce all bets are off. Get her taken off ALL your accounts. Change all your passwords. If you have credit or debit cards logged on any sites or in your computer (for quick online checkout for example), erase them from the system. Do it NOW. Don't put it off. Every hour she has access, she can create more hell for you to clean up later.
2. Secure any valuables you have about the house that belong to you - your personal jewelry, anything you came into the marriage with that has value. Lock it all up. Don't remove it from the property if you haven't officially divided assets yet. The next thing she'll probably go after is valuables, if she can't get money from your credit card accounts.
2. Talk to a lawyer about the credit cards taken out in your name. Yes, all debt of one spouse may be considered debt of another BUT because they aren't in her name, and were taken out without your consent or knowledge, I wonder if they might be considered fraud? If you have some evidence to that effect, say, emails you sent to your wife, saying "hey WTF is this card in my name I never knew about" then bring anything you have with you to a lawyer. It may cost you some money, probably a heck of a lot less than the debt she racked up in your name.
