Divorce And Hidden Assets

Either spouse may have hidden assets of which the other spouse is not aware. Discovery of hidden assets generally comes about only by means of a thorough investigation conducted by forensic accountants, investigators and highly trained legal professionals.

At Scott M. Brown & Associates, we help our clients going through the divorce process in Texas determine if their spouse has value hidden in real estate investment properties, land, a business, stocks, bonds, retirement accounts, separate bank accounts or anywhere overseas. Our Pearland hidden asset lawyers have also uncovered undervalued property and hidden debts, money and valuable items stashed in safes.

We closely examine all aspects of each spouse’s financial life, including tax returns, which are extremely helpful for discovering assets our clients never knew about.

Our attorneys can speak with you today about the unique circumstances of your property division case and get to work right away. Call us at 979-849-8526 to schedule a consultation.

Experience And Resources Required: Locate Hidden Assets Anywhere In The World

Our team brings years of combined legal experience to your case. It is important to act quickly. If assets were not discovered in the original divorce case, you have only two years from the date of the divorce decree to claim them as community property and part of the community estate. And by that time, the value of the assets may be depleted.

An exception to this is if we can prove to the court that there was no reasonable expectation for you to have had any knowledge of the asset(s). In this case, you have up to two years from the date of discovery to file a lawsuit against your ex-spouse for your share of the value of the asset. A strong and aggressive Texas property division lawyer in your corner is a must.

Hidden assets and debts in a divorce are more common than you may think. Your spouse could have begun a business with a friend or in a relative’s name and never told you about it. He or she could have multiple bank accounts you were never aware existed. Business owners and investment property owners often have several bank and credit accounts.

Our team will work tirelessly to ensure that you are not losing out on potential community property value or slapped with debt collection harassment once your divorce is finalized.
