Each party to a divorce must disclose the entirety of their financial assets, but many do not. In fact, some actively scheme to hide assets from their spouse. Sometimes they’ve been doing this throughout the marriage, keeping their spouse and the IRS in the dark. In other cases, the spouse who controls the couple’s finances starts moving assets around in the run-up to the divorce. These actions can deprive the other spouse of a fair share of the couple’s marital estate and may have criminal implications as well. When you retain The Law Offices of Lawrence S. Katz, P.A., you get the benefit of many years of legal experience in divorce litigation. We leave no stone unturned as we work to uncover the hidden assets that are rightfully yours.
Unscrupulous spouses try a variety of schemes to keep assets hidden from their partners during divorce proceedings. Here are some of the most common:
As experienced divorce attorneys, we consult extremely skilled forensic accountants who know how to examine financial documents for discrepancies to discern where funds have been removed, so we can take the steps necessary to recover them. If you retain our services before a divorce is filed, we can file a petition requesting an injunction to prevent a spouse from moving assets in anticipation of divorce.
Parties to a divorce in Florida must sign a financial affidavit, a sworn statement that their financial disclosure is complete and truthful. If a spouse has hidden assets, that spouse has committed perjury, which is a felony. In addition to those criminal charges, a spouse who hides assets from you may have been hiding those assets from the IRS as well. In that case, discovering those assets would put the spouse in jeopardy of federal prosecution for income tax evasion.
