HOW TO UNCOVER HIDDEN ASSETS
During the discovery process of a divorce, both spouses share all documents relevant to their finances. This is the first opportunity to spot any indication that your spouse is being less than honest about property and assets.
You may be able to identify hidden assets by reviewing:
- Tax returns
- Any canceled checks
- Saving account records
- Employer records
- Security deposit box records
- Any abuse of children's bank accounts
- Family estate or inheritance tax returns
If hidden assets cannot be discovered from these or other financial records, but you still suspect your spouse is hiding money, then it may be time to seek other options. A forensic accountant may be able find the assets you and your lawyer cannot. You do not have to stand for financial bullying from your spouse during your divorce. Get the incisive and steadfast counsel you need to recover the support you deserve.
