When you get divorced, the law entitles you to an equitable share of marital property. In some cases, especially in high asset divorces, a spouse may not report all of his or her assets or income. Hiding assets this way is unfair and will likely result in an inequitable result. To overcome such results, you need the help of an experienced and skilled divorce attorney.
At Maddox & Gerock, P.C., we are dedicated to helping our clients obtain fair and equitable treatment during the property division process. In recovering hidden assets, we work with a wide network of professionals who help us locate and recover assets hidden domestically, offshore and overseas. Some of these experts include:
- Forensic accountants
- Business valuation experts
- Private investigators
Protecting Your Rights to Marital Assets
Though there are many legitimate ways to engage in asset protection, some spouses go too far, crossing the line into the area of marital fraud. When you visit our lawyers, we will discuss your suspicions about hidden assets and how we can help you achieve a settlement or judgment that protects your interests without violating the law.
There are many different ways for assets to be hidden, and using our knowledge and experience, we can help you locate and recover them. Some examples of issues we handle include:
- Unreported income from a business
- Offshore bank accounts
- Stock options
- Life insurance
- Transferring assets to others to remove those assets from the marital estate
With the assistance of experts, we are often able to trace the flow of money into and out of bank accounts. This often enables us to locate accounts that our clients were unaware of and it helps us achieve positive results.
