Hidden Assets In Divorce Proceedings


In divorce involving high-net worth estates, one party may suspect that the other party is hiding assets. These circumstances demand help from lawyers skilled in tracing assets and reconstructing financial transactions.

The attorneys of Ciesla Beeler have the skills and experience to investigate the detail of your marital estate, as well as any assets you have independent of the marriage. Through this forensic analysis, any questions of inaccurate disclosure of assets will be brought to light. Our goal is to ensure that you obtain fair and equitable property division during your high-asset divorce.

Providing The Resources You Need To Uncover Hidden Assets

Sometimes in order to arrive at a fair and equitable divorce settlement, you need the help of financial and divorce professionals who are experienced in locating suspected assets that are hidden or have 'gone missing.'  We have the knowledge, skill and resources to handle even the most complex cases and when needed, will work to find experts to assist in the search for any assets your spouse may have concealed. This may include:

  • Unreported income

  • Skimmed cash from a business

  • Delay of signing contracts or other actions to lessen the value of a business

  • Undervalued or overlooked antiques, artwork, collections, equipment or tools

  • Income that is not reported on tax or financial documents

  • Retirement accounts that your spouse did not tell you existed

  • Investments and municipal bonds that were not registered with the IRS

  • Gifts, travel expenses, rent or tuition paid to a paramour

  • The delay of bonuses, stock options or raises until a time when they would not be considered marital property
