Find Hidden Assets During Divorce
While many divorces involve the dividing of basic assets, as well as determining child custody arrangements, child support payments and alimony payments, others present a much more complex situation. This is especially the case in situations involving a high net worth divorce, where it is possible that one spouse will attempt to purposely avoid having marital assets accurately identified and valued in order to prevent the assets from being taken from them and given to the other spouse.
When attempting to protect the assets through fraudulent means, considerable assets may be transferred to loved ones or friends. Other types of entities used to shield assets and falsify true net worth are offshore and foreign accounts, tax shelters and shell corporations, among others.
Uncovering hidden assets may call for sophisticated forensic accounting actions such as monitoring electronic transactions and gaining access to offshore financial records. For more than 40 years, Cauthen, Oldham & Associates, P.A., has been a proven resource for high net worth individuals and others facing divorce and other family law matters involving hidden assets. We provide professional, discreet representation to clients throughout central Florida.
Uncovering The Truth
One of the most common situations involving hidden assets is when a divorcing couple or individual spouse owns a closely held business. Sometimes money is transferred into or out of the business to make it appear less valuable than it really is. Other times, business records are altered to make the company seem as though it is making less money or taking a loss, even when it is thriving.
At Cauthen, Oldham & Associates, P.A., we partner with forensic accountants, private investigators, and tax and other financial experts to uncover the truth. Examining tax returns, ledgers and other documentation can be helpful in showing us where money is being spent and whether property has been transferred into a friend’s or relative’s name. No matter how complex your case may seem, our firm has the experience and resources to efficiently track down hidden assets while protecting your rights and interests.
