Chances are when you go to court that the court will consider the sports car solely his separate debt. They will also distribute the entire value of the whole life policy to him.

one month before separation my husband bought a 32K sports car and he was seen driving his girlfriend around once in it and even brought her to the house and the children met her (he said she was a friend from work). Now, closer to the separation date, husband cashes in a whole life insurance (of which I was the beneficiary) and uses 90K of this for a down payment on a house that he and his girlfriend live in immediately after separation and about 40K on house furniture. One month later he sells the sports car for a 9K loss.

I believe our ED will end up in the court room. Is this info that can be used against him to show that he spent marital monies on his affair and to shift the percentage more to my side.
