How can I check and see if my ex had a Swiss Bank Account? Our daughter who was the only minor child would be entitled to that money.

You are able to open a Swiss bank account, without having personally go to Switzerland, it can all be done in correspondence. That of course does not apply on a numbered account, which in that case you will have to visit Switzerland in person to approve the account, try for more information.

Swiss bank accounts generally, by definition, are impenetrable and unfindable.

The only way a Swiss bank will even let you see IF someone owns an account (much less let you exact money from it) is if you show up personally to court in Switzerland, hire a Swiss lawyer, and prove that the owner has violated a SWISS law. Even cold-blood tax evasion is not against Swiss law, as the Swiss value the right of privacy over virtually any other right. Trying to get money from an ex would get laughed out of Swiss courts. (This is precisely why so many people get Swiss bank accounts.)

If your husband was a serious a##hole, extremely rich, and you really need that money, search Swiss law and look for any possible loophole in the situation, pray, and call a Swiss law firm. But your chances are slim.

As for how to get a Swiss bank account, there are two options. A) get a normal bank account the regular way (usually necessitating showing up in person), but this won't get you the sweet features in the movies (numbered account, private identity, etc.). B) One of the two or three elite banks, e.g. Credit Suisse, will give you all the coveted special features only if you can make a starting deposit worth their time (usually about 1,000,000 USD).

Can a us citizen open an account In PNB Philippine national bank?

A US citizen can legally open a bank account with the Philippine National Bank after filling out and submitting special paperwork required of US citizens. Many foreign banks are no longer willing to open accounts for citizens of the United States due to passage of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA). The paperwork and reporting requirements required by foreign banks that allow US citizens to open bank accounts are so onerous that many banks simply refuse to open accounts for US citizens. In addition, there are severe penalties for both the banks and US citizens who inadvertently or deliberately violate the rules and regulations imposed by FATCA.
