“The husband engaged in the intentional dissipation, depletion and/or waste of marital assets which negatively impacted the marital realm economically,” Jennifer said in the documents. The documents also noted that “the husband should be prohibited from selling, transferring, assigning, encumbering or dissipating any assets during the pendency of this proceeding.”
