Can you risk the joint account being emptied or your credit card blowing out? You may need to talk to your bank, home loan provider and
credit card provider sooner rather than later. You may need to add another signature – yours – for any transactions and change the PIN numbers for any accounts you hold in joint names. Consider opening accounts
in your own name to start taking control of your money.
Discuss with your lawyer the payments each of you are continuing to make. For example,
if you’re the only one making any mortgage repayments on the house, don’t assume these are
factored into calculations. Check with your lawyer.
