I am looking at separating from my husband, but as a very low income earner, I want to protect my finances. We have no children and are only renting our property. The separation would not be amicable and I have seen from his dealings with his ex. He is ruthless in his willingness to manipulate. I have a term deposit which is in my name, that I do not want to lose. Is there any way I can ensure he cannot touch it? It would be all I have left.
