Divorce is a life-altering event. For most people, it is an emotionally charged situation. The person you had loved and intended to share a life with is now someone who you consider your “enemy”—viewing them with anything from indifference to hatred. Any sense of trust has gone out the window. For some, notwithstanding the breakdown of the marriage, they sincerely want to resolve their marital issues amicably and in a fair and reasonable manner. However, for a significant number the raw emotions at the outset of the marital breakup seem to engender a need to “screw” the other person as much as possible. Depending upon your position in the relationship, you either want to “milk” the other spouse for all you can get, or you want to pay the other as little as possible. One spouse may feel the need to “protect” assets or income from the claims of the other. One spouse may suspect that the other is hiding assets or diminishing income. In many cases, these feelings are borne out of the mistrust that exists and are not occurring in reality. However, in others these feelings or suspicions have some basis in fact. Claims of concealed or diminished income aside, this article will focus on concerns over the possibility of concealed or hidden assets in divorce, and will provide a brief overview of what to look for and how to address such issues when they arise.
