When confronted with the prospect of divorce, some people will go to great lengths to avoid the accurate identification, valuation and division of marital assets. These individuals may transfer substantial assets to family and friends. They may also use shell corporations, offshore accounts and tax shelters to hide assets and attempt to appear as though their net worth is less than what it really is.
We invite you to contact us to schedule a consultation with one of our lawyers for finding hidden assets during divorce. With offices in Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton, Florida, we represent husbands and wives throughout the Tri-County area. Attorney referrals are welcome.
If hidden assets are suspected in your case, the Law Offices of Barry I. Finkel, P.A., will take immediate action. Our attorneys draw upon more than 60 years of experience and an intimate knowledge of the law to engage in complex asset discovery.
One of the most common situations involving hidden assets is when a couple or individual spouse owns a closely held business. Sometimes money is transferred into or out of the business in a way that makes it appear less successful than it really is. Other times, business records are altered to make it appear that the company is making less money or is loosing money, even when it is not.
We partner with forensic accountants, private investigators and tax and other financial experts to uncover the truth. Examining certain documentation, such as tax returns and ledgers, 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.
For the trusted advice and zealous representation you need, we invite you to call our Fort Lauderdale lawyers at 954-776-1414 to schedule a consultation. You can also reach our Boca Raton office at 561-910-1870. If we are unavailable when you call, a member of our team will return your phone call within one hour. Attorney referrals are welcome.
