Uncovering Hidden Assets In Divorce

In acrimonious divorce disputes, the possibility of a spouse hiding assets is a common worry. When assets are effectively hidden, they are left out of divorce proceedings, making impossible for the other party to receive his or her fair share of marital property.

At the Harrisburg law firm of Shaffer & Engle Law Offices, LLC, we are skilled and experienced in locating hidden assets in divorce proceedings, and in helping you obtain your fair share of wealth accumulated during your marriage. Our attorney team has a combined 65 years of legal experience, and can work to enforce your marital property rights by:

  • Hiring a private investigator to track activity and asset transfers
  • Utilizing Web resources
  • Working with the Department of State
  • Tracking spouses who have hidden assets in corporations and shell corporations
  • Issuing subpoenas regarding information pertaining to assets

We can even track assets that have been moved overseas. When assets are transferred overseas it often "travels" under an account number instead of a name. If a country is a signatory of the Hague Convention we can compel compliance with overseas countries and organizations.

A Success Story

A recent case illustrates our effectiveness in identifying, locating and obtaining hidden assets in divorce cases. Our client's husband cashed a certificate of deposit several months prior to the couple's final separation. Our investigation revealed that he used the money to invest in a company, then removed the money from the company by having the company "hire" and pay his new girlfriend! The results of our representation? Our client received her portion of the certificate of deposit back.
