How to take my name off joint bank account

Los Angeles, CA |

Had a joint checking/savings account with a partner for years. Relationship ended, but she is still using account. Would like to remove my name from all aspects of account. Bank (Wells Fargo) says only way to resolve is to close the account. Is there another way for me to remove my name and leave the account open for her?

Try contacting the bank's customer service. Otherwise, you may have to just close the account.
