Do you believe that your spouse has hidden assets in their anticipation of a divorce? When faced with the financial realities of a divorce, some spouses take less-than-honest measures to reduce the amount of money they seemingly have. When this is done successfully, determinations like property division, alimony, and even child support can suffer.

Our team of determined and knowledgeable Staten Island divorce attorneys is well-versed in the many lengths some spouses will go to hide assets and have the diligence and resources needed to bring these assets back to light.

There are various ways spouses can shield certain assets from consideration during a divorce. There are, however, a number of common strategies used in these circumstances to unfairly lessen the financial burden of the higher-earning spouse.
Common methods of hiding assets include:
In cases where a spouse works in an all-cash business where little income is reported, our firm analyzes the marriage lifestyle, as well as assets and liabilities it may have. We can implement many discovery tools to accomplish this, as well as use the power of the court to impute income to the recalcitrant spouse.
No matter what your hidden asset concerns might be, our firm is ready to get to the bottom of them and ensure that you receive the property and financial support you deserve. Schedule a free consultation with us today.
