This can arise from fear that the other party may try to restrict access to shared bank accounts, or could otherwise restrict their spouse's financial standing in the timeframe between filing and reaching a final divorce settlement. While there are a range of benefits associated with having access to money during this period, there are also risks that come with establishing a secret account.
