Can I Clear Out Shared Bank Accounts If I Know My Spouse Is About To File For Divorce?

While it may feel good to take steps to punish a spouse who is about to file for divorce, the truth is that there are no real strategic advantages to doing so, and big risks that actions like that will communicate to the court that you’re someone who is likely to act in bad faith.

In addition, the court is almost certain to order you to reimburse your spouse for their share of the funds you’ve taken.

If your marriage is ending, lashing out isn’t the best thing you can do.

The best thing you can do is hire the experienced Brooklyn divorce team at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, who can protect you from the worst of what divorce has to offer and make sure you can make a clean start when your marriage ends.
