Hiding assets during a divorce is sneaky, unethical and illegal –but it happens much more frequently than most expect. Unreported income and hidden assets are often alleged in divorce proceedings, especially in high net-worth cases, and are usually quite complicated. It is common for a spouse to hide income and assets, especially if the divorce has been planned for a long time. There are numerous ways to find hidden assets, but typically assets are either placed in the hands of a third party or behind false documents. The process of finding assets or proving unreported income is often one of the most difficult assignments during the divorce process. Being familiar with ways individuals move assets into the hands of third parties or behind false documents and techniques to find those hidden assets can result in the successful discovery of this property.
