During a recent phone consultation, I spoke with a woman in her late 50s
who tearfully explained she had lost control of her life. Her husband
had always controlled the finances even though she was part owner of their
family business. She received a very small salary from the business and
her husband paid all the bills. She never saw the bills and had no idea
what was spent.
Although they filed joint tax returns, she never saw the details of the
returns. Her husband would just put them in front of her and say, “sign.”
She had no idea what their business generated financially or about their
savings, assets or pensions.
She had successfully raised two grown daughters and no longer wanted to
be in a controlling and abusive marriage. Since she had very little access
to money she was afraid she would not be able to support herself or secure
As a psychologically trained divorce attorney and mediator, I quickly realized
during the conversation that he was a controlling spouse. He exercised
a lot of power and control over her, keeping her trapped and dependent.
She was going to need an attorney/mediator with a strong understanding
of this type of spouse to get her the best possible outcome and the financial
support she deserved.
I assured her I would fight for her, and I am doing so. Right now members
of my team of experts are evaluating the family catering business and
tracking down some of the hidden assets.
