How to close and settle joint bank savings account after divorce

Background: I won the 498A case few years ago. Now, I have won the contested divorce on grounds of adultery and cruelty. Have joint savings bank accounts along with joint bank locker. Note that my ex-wife had operated the bank locker immediately after filing the 498a FIR.


  1. What is the process to close and settle the joint bank accounts
  2. What is the process to ask the bank to open the bank locker in front of bank officials or video record during opening.
  3. If I need to file civil case for the above, any idea on the duration to get the order or the process that is involved

Note: my divorce lawyer had told me that will need to file separate case for settling joint bank a/c and to open bank locker.


Thank you in advance.
