Financial Infidelity and Divorce Proceedings
If a person is very worried about losing assets in the advent of a divorce, he or she may engage in questionable behavior in order to hide financial assets gained during the course of the marriage from his or her partner. This kind of behavior is known as financial infidelity.
Spouses may go to great lengths in order to hide financial assets including lying, manipulation, and the hiding of funds. To find out more about financial infidelity or other issues related to divorce, contact the Denton divorce attorneys of Alexander & Associates at 972-420-6560.
Finding Hidden Funds
The most common motive for financial infidelity is to keep certain funds, rather than dividing them equitably in the event of a divorce. People who engage in this behavior generally believe that behind dishonest about their funds may prevent them from being discovered. However, divorce attorneys who suspect financial infidelity can find out about these hidden funds in several ways, including:
- The divorce attorney can subpoena records relating to hidden funds such as bank account or stock information.
- The attorney can cross-examine the offending spouse under oath about the existence of hidden assets.
- The attorney can reveal instances of financial infidelity to the judge, who then may feel compelled to rule in the other spouse’s favor.
Individuals that engage in financial infidelity and are able to successfully lie to spouses during a marriage will likely be found out with the careful efforts of a divorce attorney.
