withrawal of funds from mortgage loan

Hi Everyone

I have separated in the last few months and among the many things I have discovered that i didn't know about including finding out that my spouse has been withdrawing/transferring quite large sums of money out of the home loan account. It was over a period of about five years . I rang the bank to see hoe he could do this without my permission as my name is also on the mortgage and they told me that when the loan was set up it was linked to his account and a direct debit was established to take care of the fortnightly loan repayments. so it appears that there is nothing I can do about this in a legal sensee (please anyone let me know if there is) So how do I confront him about this and am I entitled to know what he did with the money?  I will be interested to hear his explanation.  Could I include this incident as part of the property settlement and get some of the money back that he took in deception (about 20k)  Then of course there is the issue of trust, after this discovery as well as many other things I have found out since becoming separated I feel as if our marriage has been one big lie ,  has anyone else had this happen and what did you do about it?.   Many thanks for any advice I can get
This issue could be addressed by add back or even wastage - it will not be ignored. You need to speak to a lawyer urgently. Make sure you have copies of ALL the various bank/mortgage accounts.

Your lawyer is correct in what they say. Bring it up at mediation - it just might scare him in to either conceding the point or making his situation worse.
