Unfortunately, maxing out jointly held credit cards and emptying joint bank accounts are common tactics used by spouses who are planning to divorce.
The results can be devastating to the other spouse, who suddenly has no credit and an empty savings account.
If this has happened to you, count on a few things.
First, your divorce is likely to be dirty, and second, you need to hire a good lawyer, fast.
At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we make sure that our clients regain access to shared monies and that the debt accumulated by your spouse is allocated to them, and not left as an obligation you’ll be responsible for.
We protect our clients from even the harshest divorce scenarios, and make sure they have access to the money they need to survive while the details are worked out in conferences and in court.
