When faced with the possibility of divorce, there are some who will do anything possible to avoid full disclosure of assets, accurate valuation and equitable division of marital assets. Shell corporations, offshore accounts and tax shelters are all commonly used to hide and minimize the value of assets.
When confronted with a complex divorce, it is crucial to retain a divorce lawyer who has experience with engaging the relevant experts to locate, thoroughly investigate and properly value all assets.
The accurate characterization of assets — whether community property, quasi-community property, separate or commingled — is one of the most vital and most complicated matters to resolve. Without the help of the appropriate experts, you could lose your claim to your rightful share of the assets due to lack of supporting evidence.
