Can I Use the Bank Account During My Divorce?

If a party has to use the bank account to pay for normal marital expenses during the pendency of the lawsuit, then the court has the authority to value the account as of date-of-trial. For example, if one party has no income and they have to use that bank account to pay for a mortgage or food or utilities, those are proper expenditures that the court would most likely find would not constitute wrongful dissipation. And the court would not be able to use those dollars that were in the bank account on the date of filing in the final property division at trial.
