By Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, Florida
As an officer of the court, I simply cannot advise any party in a divorce action to do such a thing as clean out all the bank accounts or cash in all the liquid funds. That is because the presumption under the laws of the State of Florida is that the accounts are owned in equal portions 50/50 by the spouses. My advice under normal circumstances is go get half. However, there are certain instances where it is justified to clean out the bank accounts. You will suffer the consequences and accusations, but you will have affirmative defenses.
