If you are in a high net worth marriage that has been slowly unravelling,
you may suspect that your spouse is hiding assets from you. Among unhappy
couples, this is not an unusual concern. Typically, high net worth couples
have the knowledge, means, and ability to conceal assets from their spouse,
especially when the innocent spouse lacks direct knowledge of a specific asset.
Regardless of the love couples once had for each other, when marriages
start to break down, some people start to move assets to offshore accounts,
to friends and family, to paramours, to secret investment accounts, and
even to safety deposit boxes their spouses are unaware of. Generally,
the thinking is, “I do not want to have to split this with my spouse.”
Such financial misconduct, however, is neither tolerated in the divorce
courts, nor is it legal.
In today’s technologically-advanced world, it may be easy to move
large amounts of money, yet these large financial transactions almost
always leave behind a digital trail, which is helpful to the spouse who
is on the receiving end of deceit.
