Is Your Spouse Hiding Assets Or Committing Marital Fraud?
Marital misconduct on the part of one spouse can result in the other spouse obtaining a more favorable divorce settlement. Some examples of marital misconduct include attempting to hide marital assets, squandering assets, physical abuse and adultery.
If you are thinking about divorce and these or other issues could be factors in your case, you should seek experienced legal representation as soon as possible. At the Law Office of Amy L. Gervich, we are a divorce and family law firm that has extensive experience representing clients in contested divorce cases. We work vigorously to protect our clients’ interests and will seek to obtain the best resolution possible for you in your case.
How You Can Help Yourself
If divorce looks inevitable, the most important thing you can do is get sound legal advice. At the Law Office of Amy L. Gervich, an experienced attorney can review your situation and explain your legal options. We can also help you plan for divorce and take other measures that can lay the groundwork for a positive outcome.
If your spouse is attempting to hide assets or is squandering them on gambling or drugs, make copies of financial records. You can also make a journal of your spouse’s comings and goings, make copies of phone bills and take note of other unusual behavior on the part of your spouse. We can advise and assist you regarding these or other measures — and evidence like this can help us establish that your spouse has been hiding assets or committing marital fraud.
Protecting Your Rights And Interests
In cases involving marital misconduct and misbehavior, our firm often works with professionals who can develop evidence in support of your case. In situations involving a spouse who attempts to hide assets, for example, we might call in a forensic accountant who can trace the assets in question. We can also hire a private investigator who can look into suspicious patterns of behavior on the part of your spouse.
