It’s a staggering statistic that financial abuse is present in 98 per cent of abusive relationships. Financial abuse can range from someone who is overly controlling with how money is spent at the grocery store, to an abuser who demands the victim’s paycheck or does not allow access to joint bank accounts. If you don’t have access to money that you know is rightfully yours, let your attorney know. The courts can order that you have access to your funds.
