Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions. No, the general rule is that a plaintiff in a lawsuit cannot freeze a defendant's bank account prior to obtaining a money judgment. There are always exceptions, of course, but it would be uncommon. Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.

Well, here's the situation. My ex wife and i sold our house. After my half was put into an account she took the liberty to pay off her credit card ($2981.84) but i only owed $2000. I want to sue her and freeze her savings so i know she will have the money to pay me back.
Family Lawyer: TJ, Esq., Attorney replied 1 year ago
Hi again. In that type of situation, I would not expect the judge to freeze the account prior to obtaining the money judgment. I wish that I had better news.
