If you suspect your spouse is hiding assets, then you or your attorney should hire a forensic accountant who can help you determine what assets are being hidden and how much.
A few things that you or the forensic accountant will look for are:
1. Tax returns. A review of the last five years of tax returns may reveal assets that have now “disappeared.”
2. Checking accounts. A review of the last three to five years of checking accounts will usually discover checks and payments towards assets.
3. Loan applications. If your spouse has filed for a mortgage, automobile loan or any other type of loan, typically they will place all their assets on these forms.
4. Computer data. A review of a computer’s hard drive and history may review secret stock trades, cash transfers or other assets.
If you believe your spouse is hiding assets, it is important to hire an attorney who can find these hidden assets.
