Halifax/bank of Scotland name removal from joint account in Halifax Bank and Bank of Scotland Posted August 19, 2018 Andy, The account is in credit and has always been since it was originally setup. She has not used this account since they split up. Bazooka Boo She has done that so that any money she gets paid by IS (when they finally get to giving her some) does not go into the other account. Her child benefit and CTcredit is being paid into the new account as well. Just wondering if theres some kind of letter that can be sent to the bank so that she can get her name off the joint account. Or, that they have split up and she is no longer using that account so would like her name removed from it and that she will not be responsible for any debts that may occur on the joint account from the date of the breakup. Really just want someway of getting her name off the account without her having to travel 300 miles to Scotland just to sign a paper..... Would it be worth a trip to the local citizens advice centre?
