Are you worried about hidden assets in divorce?

When you decided to sever your marital ties in a Connecticut court, you probably imagined various types of scenarios that might occur during proceedings. Perhaps, you and your spouse would disagree about child custody issues or need help negotiating a new parenting plan for life after divorce. Maybe everything would run smoothly and achieving an amicable settlement would be much easier than you assumed.

There's another possibility, however, that may also have run through your mind, which includes acrimonious courtroom battles regarding serious financial issues or assertions made against one spouse by the other. For instance, many people have faced situations where they suspect certain assets are being hidden from them so as not to become subject to property division in court. This state operates under equitable distribution laws, as do all but nine other states in the nation.

That means not every asset will be divided evenly, but the court will determine how to distribute assets fairly. If you think your spouse is trying to keep money out of your hands by suddenly loaning substantial amounts of it to relatives or friends, or he or she has requested a delayed payment at work, you may wish to further investigate the matter. There are other ways to hide assets as well, such as opening a separate bank account or secretly selling things like artwork or a jewel collection.
