Discovering Hidden Assets in Divorce
If you believe your spouse is hiding assets or income in order to shield their liability in the divorce process, Spivak Law Firm can assist you by taking the following actions:
- Engage in Discovery: The formal process known as discovery is used for obtaining financial documents for the purpose of determining the value of the marital estate and a spouse’s income. The discovery process includes Interrogatories, or written questions requiring written responses, and Requests for Production of Documents.
- Designate the Support Case Complex: By designating a support case complex, the Court enables you to use all the tools of discovery to uncover the other spouse’s financial information. It also enables you to more fully litigate your claims for child support and spousal support over the course of several hours and even call expert witnesses.
- Hire a Financial Expert: There are several types of financial experts that may be useful in high net income cases. A forensic accountant can help identify hidden assets. A business valuator can assign a value to a company based on complex methods. Appraisers may be called upon to assign values to artwork, jewelry and other assets in the marital estate.
