Saratoga Divorce Attorney Discusses Your Spouse Getting Access To Your Bank Account
I’m often asked as an Saratoga Divorce Attorney, if a parent or sibling can add our client’s name to their bank account and whether or not the spouse of our client can then access those funds or make a claim to those funds in the event of a divorce. Your parent or sibling can always add your name to a bank account. I advise clients as a Saratoga Divorce Attorney that your spouse can try to make a claim, but the likelihood is that they will have no claim to the funds unless you have transferred marital funds into that account in an attempt to hide those funds. If it is an account that contains only your parent’s money or a sibling’s funds, then no, your spouse will not be able to make a claim for the funds in that account.
