Seeking Hidden Assets. By: Law Office of Steven B. Chroman P.C. Santa Clarita Divorce


In some marriages, it is not uncommon for one spouse to engage in investment activity or have financial accounts that are unknown to the other. When divorcing, it is necessary to disclose all assets, including those accounts maintained separately by only one spouse. The problem is that the unknowing spouse may have to go to great lengths to uncover these hidden assets.

When you turn to The Law Office of Steven B. Chroman we will do our best to locate and value hidden assets. We have more than 16 years of experience handling complex divorces for couples of all backgrounds, including those of high net worth clients.

Whether you believe your spouse has engaged in sophisticated methods like tax shelters or has transferred money to friends or others to give the appearance of minimal assets, we will work diligently to uncover these assets. If you are concerned that your spouse may be hiding assets, we are ready to help.

Our experience has shown that finding hidden assets can be challenging, and recovering them can be difficult. In an effort to get the best possible result, we work with forensic accountants, tax professionals and other experts who are skilled at discovering misappropriated assets.

Our firm has the ability to handle divorces that involve financial issues such as:

  • Tax shelters
  • Foreign/overseas investments and bank accounts
  • Hidden debts and tax liabilities
  • The undervaluing of a business or professional practice
  • The possible transfer of money from one spouse to his or her family members with the intent to prevent that money from being divided

By the time a marriage has broken down to the point that divorce is the only recourse, it is normal to feel some sense of suspicion about finances. The best thing you can do is consult with us so that we can help determine whether there is really a cause for concern. If there is, we can and will take the appropriate action on your behalf.
