Often this behavior isn’t even about preserving the marriage, but rather about using their ability to control events to make themselves feel more empowered.
The good news is that you are not required to give in to spouse’s ego, and you have every right to file for divorce even if your spouse is preventing you from accessing money in your jointly held accounts.
At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we offer potential clients a free initial consultation.
Your situation, while difficult, is not unique, and our attorneys can walk you through your options.
Generally, a spouse whose finances are being held hostage can expect that legal fees will be paid by their spouse, and we can also help ensure that you get access to marital funds to which you are entitled.
