Going through a divorce can be one of the most difficult times in a person’s life. It can be mentally and emotionally draining for all parties involved. The situation is made even worse if you believe your spouse is hiding money or assets.
Trying to figure out what your spouse may be hiding from you is a difficult process. Getting to know the signs that this may be happening in your situation can be beneficial.
They have a separate or private mailbox
It’s much easier for one spouse to conceal financial activity if they have control of the physical evidence. Have you noticed your spouse has begun using a P.O. box or another private mailbox? If so, it may be a sign they are hiding documents, paperwork and financial information.
They’re very controlling about the financials
Does your spouse handle all the finances in your relationship? Do you have limited access to bank accounts and other financial information? If so, then it may be another indication that they are hiding assets.
Uncovering hidden assets
When going through a divorce, you have a right to share the assets acquired during your marriage. Unfortunately, if you don’t know about them, it may be impossible to receive what is fair. In some cases, using the services of a forensic accountant or similar professional can be beneficial. They can evaluate your spouse’s financial situation and find any assets you may not be aware of, such as investments, bank accounts and more.
If you believe your spouse is hiding assets during your divorce, taking steps to find them and receive your fair share is your right.
