If You Suspect Your Spouse Is Hiding Assets Before Divorce
Laws and legal processes for dividing assets in divorce depend on each spouse providing full disclosure of all property before asset division. If you suspect that your spouse is trying to prevent a fair division of property, consult with a skilled divorce attorney right away.
The lawyers of Nelson, Krueger & Millenbach, LLC, are here to guide you through the sometimes-painstaking process of dividing complex or high-dollar assets. We will take all necessary measures to ensure that your spouse is being honest about the value and location of all assets.
People Hide Money And Other Property In Many Ways
You may have strong suspicions about your spouse’s mishandling of assets before your divorce in one or more of these ways:
- They are giving or lending property to their siblings, close friends or business associates.
- They have bought digital currency through hard-to-trace online accounts.
- They have physically hidden valuable items in an obscure place, such as on a rural property or in a warehouse, possibly claiming that those things have been lost or stolen.
- They are hiding assets such as collectibles in plain sight by not being forthcoming about their value.
- They have improperly and surreptitiously put personal funds in business accounts.
- They have not disclosed all retirement accounts and/or investments.
If you suspect something is amiss, you should seek out an attorney who will go all-out looking for assets. Our lawyers at Nelson, Krueger & Millenbach, LLC, have experience and a drive to protect your rights in property division. They will work with forensic accountants if necessary and hold your spouse responsible when it comes to representing assets accurately and dividing them fairly.
If your divorce has already taken place and hidden assets have come to light, we can bring your spouse back to court. A judge may find them guilty of being in contempt of court during the divorce through incomplete disclosure of assets.
