Can I make my husband repay the money he cleaned out of my bank account?
If your husband cleaned out a bank account and took the money out and you have no way of getting that money back, then there is very little that a judge can do or a court do. What will happen is if the parties have assets worth maybe $100,000, let’s say, and your spouse cleans out $50,000 worth of cash or assets, then the judge will have the remaining $50,000 worth of assets given to you. Because your spouse, what he did, or she did, during the divorce proceeding, or immediately before the divorce proceeding is liquidate that asset. However, if the liquidation or the cleaning of the bank account was done way before the divorce proceeding was initiated, let’s say, a year or two or three, there is very little that a judge can do.
