It is dangerous to construct a building on a weak foundation. And building a new life can be extremely difficult without a strong financial foundation. If you are going through a divorce, you want to come out on the other side with enough wealth to sustain yourself and your children. To this end, it is imperative that you get your fair share of the property and assets that are eligible for division.
But the journey to your independence may prove arduous, especially if your soon-to-be ex-spouse is not forthcoming about the assets in his or her possession. Even though both you and your ex will be required to declare your assets, it is possible that he or she will either deliberately or accidently present you with an inaccurate inventory.
So how can you be sure that everything you are entitled to has been brought to the table? Well, uncovering hidden assets can be difficult if you don't know where to look. Even if you are able to secure your ex's financial records, there are still plenty of places that funds can be stowed that will remain off the books. And it is possible that the value of such hidden assets could be quite substantial.
For this reason, you may want to turn over the task of searching for hidden assets to a California family law attorney. We at The Law Offices of Dorie A. Rogers have the experience necessary to pursue assets, sparing you the time and frustration it would exact to try to do the job yourself.
