Finding Hidden Assets During A Divorce
If you are going through a divorce, your future financial security may depend on obtaining a full and fair division of all the assets you and your spouse accumulated during your marriage. Unfortunately, assets sometimes go missing on the cusp of a divorce. It may take a lawyer’s help to uncover all of the assets your spouse accumulated during your marriage.
At Rowe Law Offices, P.C., our attorneys offer a free initial consultation to discuss divorce issues such as hidden assets. From our offices in Wyomissing and Lancaster, Pennsylvania, we serve Berks, Lancaster, York, Schuylkill and Lebanon counties and the Lehigh Valley.
How Can I Find Assets My Spouse May Have Hidden?
Our lawyers use experts such as forensic accountants and business valuation experts to ensure that you receive everything you are entitled to in divorce. We review tax records, 1099 forms and other evidence to obtain as full a picture as possible of your spouse’s assets.
Here are some examples of things that a spouse may do to hide assets:
- Keep a bank or stock account in his or her name only
- Keep cash or other valuables in a safe or safety deposit box
- Transfer assets to a friend or relative
- Underreport income from a business or self-employment
- Undervalue assets
- Misrepresent ownership of a business
In Pennsylvania, you have a right to a fair and equitable division of marital property regardless of who earned it or whose name is on the account, title or deed.
