    A relative has issued a lawyer's letter of his intention to freeze my funds in the bank. He thinks all are his money. Can I instead ask the bank to freeze my own bank account to pre-empt his action?

    What valid reasons can I give?

    Would that take precedence over his court order?

    I don't know what you feel freezing the funds yourself would achieve over someone else doing it. Either way you can't access the funds, and if your relative is going to pursue you in court for the funds, then the end result will be the same. If he obtains a court order to freeze the funds their is nothing you can do to override it.
