My Spouse Is Withdrawing Funds From Our Joint Accounts In Queens Even Though Our Divorce Has Started. What Can I Do?

When the divorce was filed in Queens, the judge issued a series of automatic orders that froze the status of the marriage’s bank accounts, property, and other material that would be subject to distribution.

If your spouse is misappropriating funds from marital sources for personal gain, the court needs to be informed, and you need to be reimbursed for all money illegally removed from the accounts and awarded any punitive amount the court sees fit to apply.

An experienced Queens divorce lawyer can help make sure that your property is protected during a divorce, and money sitting in a jointly held account awaiting distribution stays there for you.
