All of our financial accounts were in my husband’s name only, which I now understand was a mistake. He’s taken all of his stuff plus some of my things from our Worcester apartment has left me and the kids. Also, he changed all the passwords to our bank and savings accounts. Can he move money and essentially “hide” our assets before we get divorced? He has disappeared and left me with no money to support myself or our children. What should I do?
It is imperative that you file a divorce immediately. This would immediately restrain him from spending, selling or otherwise get rid of assets. You probably want to do an asset search on your husband as well. You should go through your own records to ascertain where your husband now has or at least used to have accounts or other assets. You could follow the trail from there. You would also have subpeona power with the filing of a divorce so that you could get records from banks, etc.
