Orlando Hidden Assets Lawyer
Protecting Your Rights Regarding Property Division
It is rather common, in some relationships, for one spouse to engage in investment activity or maintain a savings account without the other spouse’s knowledge. During marriage, these types of arrangements may not cause any financial problems. However, upon divorce, these assets need to be disclosed and accounted for. Locating and recovering these hidden assets can be a major problem for the unknowing spouse. It is important to find these assets so they can be properly distributed in a divorce proceeding.
At Mercedes R. Wechsler, P.A., we handle highly complex divorce matters for clients throughout Florida. Our founding attorney, Mercedes Wechsler, has 18 years of experience in dealing with high asset divorce, including many situations where one spouse attempted to hide assets from the other. Whether you are concerned that your spouse has used a tax shelter or other sophisticated method, or has instead simply transferred assets to a family member or friend, our firm will work diligently to recover the assets so they can be divided equitably.
Working With Experts
We have a reliable network of experts on whom we rely when investigating hidden asset matters. We regularly work with forensic accountants, investment specialists, business valuation experts and tax professionals to make sure that the marital property is divided according to law.
Thoroughly Investigating Possible Marital Fraud
Marital fraud comes in many forms, and may not always take place through overt hiding of assets. Instead, a spouse may undervalue his or her business in an effort to prevent its full value from being subjected to the asset division process. A spouse may suddenly report a decrease in revenues from the business. If you believe or suspect that your spouse is engaged in this type of activity, trust your instincts and contact Mercedes R. Wechsler, P.A.
We will investigate such matters as:
- Offshore accounts
- Undervaluing of a business
- Appreciation in the value of separate property investments
- The value of equity investments
- Tax shelters
- Possible transfer of money from a spouse to a third party just prior to divorce
- The use of trusts to shield assets
