When it comes to divorce, couples in Colorado may be concerned about their spouse attempting to hide assets. While this is not only unethical but it also illegal, spouses routinely attempt to cover up assets that may be considered shared marital property. In this case, knowing the methods of uncovering hidden assets is crucial if you want to ensure you get what is rightly yours during a divorce.
The Huffington Post goes over some of the more common methods spouses use when hiding assets. For instance, working with an attorney well-versed in the methods for uncovering assets is vital to your case. Past experience is key in this regard, as an attorney with prior experience in discovering hidden assets will have a better chance locating any wrongdoing. While you must be careful with the methods you use when searching for hidden assets (as some evidence may not be admissible in court), an attorney will be able to assist you in the best plan of attack.
Modern technology can also be useful when seeking out assets. Social media is great in this respect, as an ex-spouse may inadvertently reveal undisclosed assets without thinking. You can also check through your spouse’s browser history to look for any clandestine bank accounts or other useful info. For a more comprehensive search, consider utilizing software that can track your spouse’s online activities, or even a GPS which can determine whether he or she is being untruthful.
Fortunately, it’s not difficult to uncover undisclosed assets in a divorce no matter which method you use. Even hidden property can be identified by tax returns and the like. The key is to understand where and how to look, as well as have the appropriate legal assistance to ensure your search is as thorough as possible.
