Scottsdale, AZ, August 29, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The experienced family law attorneys at Corso & Rhude know that having an attorney well-versed in family law is essential in any Arizona divorce case, especially cases in which a husband or wife may suspect that their spouse is hiding assets from the divorce settlement.
Corso & Rhude attorneys work hard every day to uncover such hidden assets in Arizona divorce cases.
“We know that for any divorce settlement to work, it must be fair,” said John Rhude, founding partner of Corso & Rhude. “And nothing makes a divorce more contentious than when a person’s spouse is attempting to hide assets that belong to both parties.”
The term “hidden assets” refers to money or items with a monetary value that may be kept by a person in undisclosed locations or transferred to another person or entity for a period of time with the intention of transferring it back at some future date.
According to Rhude, hidden assets can be any number of things, such as undisclosed deposit boxes, bank accounts, retirement accounts, stocks, savings bonds, donations made to fictitious charities, or real property, such as antiques, valuable artwork, real estate, cars, boats, valuable collectibles, etc.
Persons owning their own businesses can also find creative means to keep cash from a spouse during a divorce, such as paying non-existent employees, paying family members and friends for work not completed or overpaying for work done, and accepting cash payment for services without rendering a receipt.
It can be difficult to find hidden assets but there are proven methods for discovering hidden assets according to Rhude’s law partner Christopher Corso.
“Through litigation, attorneys can take a formal deposition, a legal interview that may call on testimony from your spouse’s employer, employees, work partners, payroll supervisor, etc. to help reveal hidden assets,” Corso said. “Forensic accountants and private investigators may also be hired to review spending and accounting practices to construct a full picture of a spouse’s financial situation.”
