They divorced 7 years ago, the account haven`t been used since that time. Balance is 0. Now the account is frozen.

He can not close the account, or remove his name without the ex`s signatures.

Seems odd that this wasn't dealt with as part of the financial settlement at the time of divorce.


He ask to freeze the account, so at least the ex can't put it into overdraft, as she used to...

This case is ongoing since months, many visit in the bank, thousand phonecalls to different departments...and nothing happening.

The worst, that this is affecting his credit score badly :/

The bank is Natwest.

It's gonna stay frozen forever to be honest as it's a joint account and that will continue on indefinitely unless both parties agree for it to be unfrozen. It's now a dead account to be honest.
