Hello,If it is a joint bank account, then the presumption is that if one of you were to pass on, the funds held in that account would belong to the surviving person (under the rules of survivorship).If the funds were to be divided as part of divorce proceedings, then who gets what share would depend on the personal circumstances of the parties, what other assets are available etc. The default starting point is 50/50 split unless you have lived together for a short period in which case the split could be 70/30 or anything else the judge feels is fair.Hope this helps
Following the original question, I would like to know if I am entitled to half of the money at least in the account automatically? We are still together now,
