If the accounts are joint he cannot legally "control" the use of them. He can perhaps take the checkbook and debit cards, but it is a simple matter for the spouse to have them replaced so she has access to the monies. A joint account belongs to each account holder according to state laws and banking regulations. By law marital accounts belong to each spouse equally as long as they remain married, regardless of what amounts each contributes to it or does not contribute at all.
