Completely depends on your location, circumstances and local law. Contact a professional.

Hi OP I worked at a bank and many people came in wondering the same thing. The truth is you can't do anything. You both signed for the account, therefore the money in the account belongs to both of you, there is no "oh we both own half, or I own three-quarters and the other owns one-quarter"

so go over to the person's house and break their legs until they write you a check for the funds.

Odds are there isn't much you can do. Consider it an expensive lesson on never allowing anyone to share access to your account. If the SO insists, you can always open a seperate shared account where you can determine how much you want to keep in there.

The joint account was in BOTH of your names. The money is legally both of yours, and the other party walking away with it is perfectly legal. Unless I am missing something in your situation, you're fucked.

Since you all are technically married/together/whatever, can you play ball? Is there a car in both of your names you can Reverse Cowgirl? You need to find some ammunition or something. Dirty photos, a buisness you can ruin, something.

For that kind of money it's probably worth the hour it will cost you to ask an attorney.
