If separation occurs or divorce process starts, if my husband refuses to pay for maintenance or doesnt agree to divide our money equally, can I move half the money in joint account into my personal account without his consent? He is the sole earner and his salary is paid in our joint account. All our expenses is paid from the account as well.

Theoretically there's nothing stopping you doing that, but you will risk him paying his income in to his own account, leaving you with no access to it other than via the CSA or court order/agreement.
