Divorce is never an easy time for anyone involved. The end of any relationship carries an excessive amount of emotional weight, but divorce brings with it all the stresses and conflicts that accompany a financial decoupling as well. Trust and communication are likely at an all-time low, and there’s often a temptation to deprive the other of anything he or she stands to gain. Although both parties are required by law to disclose their full financial picture, lingering bitterness may prevent one’s ex-to-be from being fully truthful in his or her disclosures. This may be more common than one might think, considering that a survey by the National Endowment for Financial Education determined that three in five Americans have hidden money from their spouses at some point. In addition to the headache of dealing with untruthful partners, chasing down hidden assets can seem like a shell game. Luckily, there are tools and tactics available to seek out hidden assets.
