Hi,

My previous partner and I are no longer together and we would like to close our joint bank account. He lives in Perth and I live in NY. What is the process for closing an joint account when the two persons live overseas, what documents do we need to sign, and where do I submit these documents?

Hi @Laurajcohen11, can I ask if the account is 1 to sign (you both have cards for the account) or 2 to sign (this means you both need to be present when making a withdrawal)? Thanks
