Moral of the story: Ensure you contact a family law lawyer as soon as you have the slightest hint that your spouse is dissipating family assets. Recovering the lost assets (or money) is a lot harder to do once it is gone. Always be sure that you keep an eye on your bank accounts, credit card statements, and investment accounts! Have a talk with your spouse to ensure that you are both on the same page with your finances. Too many times have we seen clients that have zero knowledge of their finances, due to their partner having control of the financial accounts, thus making it difficult to trace spent monies, hidden monies, or even laundered money!

Speak to a family law lawyer at Hart Legal to ensure that you and your family's assets are protected. There are financial restraining orders that can be put into place to prevent the dissipation of assets. Be sure to ask how to go about getting a financial restraining order in place.
