You may be responsible for debts your spouse ran up just before filing, and this situation is one that courts are very familiar with.
The best thing you can do to protect yourself from this sort of malicious spending is to work with experienced divorce attorneys who know how to make a strong case to Brooklyn judges.
While your spouse (and you) are prohibited from emptying accounts and similar activities once the divorce case is filed, debts incurred beforehand are typically viewed as marital property.
A qualified, experienced lawyer can show that the spending pattern in question is atypical and deliberately timed to evade court action, which can help reduce your exposure to retaliatory debts timed to hurt you.
