Finding Hidden Bank Accounts in Divorce

Tom and Carrie had been married for 18 years, had two children, lived in the “White Picket Fence” house and joined their neighborhood “Revolving Wine Parties” for the last four years.  Tom traveled a lot and Carrie was a part time stay-at-home mom and part time sales clerk at a friend’s landscaping business.  Carrie was content with her marriage, her children and her life until one day she received the following text:  “Don’t be an ostrich”.  Carrie didn’t recognize the number, so she fluffed it off as an accidental message meant for someone else.

Be Proactive When it Comes to a Fair Divorce Settlement

It’s not always at the divorce table that potentially ex-spouses try to hide money and assets from each other. No, at International Investigators we have learned that many married people have secret accounts and other financial activities that their spouse does not know about – sometimes even throughout the entire span of the marriage. Every marriage is different and each spouse is unique, so we don’t rule anything out.

In a divorce situation, attorneys generally pursue complete disclosure of the financial assets, but clients are forewarned to be proactive and expose any hidden money, locate hidden stocks or missing assets that should clearly be included in the deposition of assets in divorce.

Cathy was always told that her ex-husband had likely lost his business since he no longer had an income. In fact, he was destitute.

Objective Asset Search Alleviates Some Pressure in Divorce

Quite often in a divorce proceeding, one spouse may suspect the other of hiding assets. Also common, one spouse is self-employed and the wife (in the majority of cases) has limited knowledge of income and investments. Hiring a private investigator is very often the key to insuring yourself a fair settlement. A private investigator will utilize a variety of investigative techniques to locate hidden accounts and find hidden assets. There are many scenarios that can play out, including:

One spouse may be in collusion with an employer or business partner to delay or hide bonuses, raises or stock options until divorce proceedings are complete.
Financial statements and tax returns seem to need more study.
Investigating the possibility of divorce assets being hidden by dumping money in a [...]

Don’t Let a Spouse Hiding Money in a Divorce Lead to an Unfair Settlement

Women are frequently very passive in their marriages, allowing the husbands to “call the shots” financially. And very often, women find themselves in the dark regarding family finances.

International Investigators has a vast array of resources to find hidden assets. Asset [...]
