Can one spouse remove funds


#1

Can a spouse remove funds from a joint account without a property settlement.

To truly answer this question I will need to know if the removal of funds happened before or after the date of separation. As an aside, until you have an agreement on property, either party has equal access to any joint account to remove funds. If your spouse removes money from a joint account, however, it is something that can be considered as a factor in your equitable distribution case.
