How long should it take for a lawyer to file to freeze a person you might be suing bank accounts?
What is involved in having a lawyer freeze bank accounts, as to not allowing a party you would be suing to be able to "freely" spend all the funds?
If it is a case where the person you would be suing can spend these funds and run them down, then there would be no money to win. Without a freeze, is this correct? Also, is there any other type of "hold" that you can ask a lawyer to do on those funds?
I need to hire a lawyer, but, I need to know this process first. The other party has access to all the bank accounts and I'm worried that they will take the funds and/or run the funds down before any freeze can be happen.
Thank you for your help.
