I am a solicitor in Scotland. Are there ongoing proceedings in court?
OK, I’ll try something else. It is generally the case that either party to a joint savings account can access the account. Is that the case here?
In that case your solicitor would have to take this to court. That would be an unfortunate waste of resources. Your best practical way of dealing with this is to make it an essential conditional of settlement that your wife signs over these accounts. It is unfortunate that there is no easy fix for this but her unreasonableness is the cause I’m afraid. I hope that helps.
