How Do I Know if My Spouse is Hiding Assets From Me?


Divorce can be a stressful and complicated process for everyone involved. This becomes especially true when you believe that your spouse may be hiding or disposing of assets. If you have not been keeping meticulous records throughout your marriage, it might be difficult to pinpoint exactly what assets you and your spouse acquired and where those assets are today. Fortunately, there is a process that may be able to help you if your spouse is not forthcoming.

The discovery process can be a helpful tool lawyers utilize to extract information regarding finances, property, business interests, and other assets your spouse may be trying to hide or dispose of during a divorce. Throughout the discovery process, your attorney will send your spouse several documents that request information pertaining to every single asset your spouse may have acquired over the course of the marriage and even before the marriage to ensure an equitable property division. If you are concerned your spouse may be hiding or disposing of assets, you need an experienced divorce litigation attorney who will zealously fight for your rights and who is knowledgeable about the discovery process.
