    There is not a straightforward answer to this as it will be tied up with the rest of your financial arrangements and how they should be separated.  If you have kept this money totally separate from any other family money you could possibly argue that it is non-marital money if the separation happened imminently. If not it will probably be treated as family money and the contribution of it will be a factor in how it is considered.  Issues such as whether it was given to you or you as a couple and what it was intended for will be relevant.  It may still be taken into consideration if the court have to decide how each of your needs are met moving forward in any event.  This is a situation where you really need to arrange a meeting with a solicitor, explain the circumstances in detail and advice can then be given as it is not possible unfortunately to just give a yes or no answer to this in isolation.
