It has been said that money is the root of all evil, and some who are experiencing divorce may agree that is right. The ending of a marriage can bring out the worst in people, and often, each spouse tries to hurt the other financially. This is especially true when one of the parties is wealthy. Here, a San Francisco divorce attorney discusses some of the underhanded tactics wealthy men use to try to hurt their wives financially.
Dragging Out Hearings
- Some husbands will delay court hearings and use an excessive amount of motions and requests for evidence in order to drag out the proceedings and drive up the ex-wife’s legal fees. Additionally, doing so stretches out the time in which she is responsible for covering the costs of living expenses. Husbands often perform these actions in an attempt to make the wife run out of money and become desperate enough to agree to the his terms, which are typically unfavorable to her.
Cutting Off Money
- Husbands often ensure they are the only people who have access to the family’s funds in order to make their wives suffer financially. They may also cut off their wives’ credit cards, move funds out of family accounts and into personal accounts, and essentially leave them without any finances to support themselves.
