I’ve Noticed Unusual Transfers Among Our Bank Accounts And Think My Spouse Is About To File For Divorce. Should I File First In Queens To Stop This?

You should thoroughly document suspect transactions, and consult a divorce lawyer as soon as possible.

It’s very common for people to engage in destructive financial acts ahead of a divorce with the intention of maximizing their gains and damaging their spouse.

This can include clearing out joint bank accounts and running up high credit card bills.

Some of these actions can be remedied through the divorce court, but that can take time and leave you with financial hardship for months.

When a spouse files for divorce, the court issues a series of automatic orders that will prevent your spouse from further raiding bank accounts and other financial assets, and then you can start working to recover what’s been taken from you already.

The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you get back money that has been stolen ahead of a divorce.
