You need to talk to a lawyer. I believe things you have prior to marriage or things taht are gifts or inhereted are yours to keep and things gain during the marraige are community property. But talk to a lawyer just to be sure.

If the bank account is under your name, then all that money is yours. Simple as that.

Consult a lawyer. The laws vary by each state and you'd get correct advice then. Yahoo answers is not a legal source.

Every state is different about who gets what but most of the time it is split down the middle between you unless you have been married over 10 years or have children. It also depends on whether he wants to fight for what you have with his lawyer. His lawyer will tell him what all he can get and that means half of your savings and whatever he has split down the middle. but he could just want the divorce without trying to get anything out of you. You need to discuss with your lawyer about having your savings before your marriage and see if that can make a difference in your state but without a pre-marriage agreement then it normally would be split down the middle.

You typically keep what you bring into marriage. You split what you get during marriage. The kicker is that no divorce is the same. You might have to prove you had the money before, because a smaller portion might have been saved while married. Hard to say until the attorneys go over. Just remember attorneys love billable hours and don't mind getting drama going not to mention a court battle to drive up charges. Seeing that you are very liquid, his attorney will be seeing dollar signs, even if it seems off limits.
