"My wife is hiding money from me"

Posted by William H. Sherman on Jan 22, 2015 | 0 Comments

Question: My wife owns a clothing business and she makes good money.  It's common to see celebrities buying her clothes.  I'll see people from the music, television and movie industries in the store.  But my wife started seeing another man about 2 years ago.  Now we are getting divorced.

We live in Martin's Landing and our child attends Blessed Trinity Catholic High School.

I think she's hiding money from me.  A lot of her business is cash and she does a lot of accounting tricks.  So I'm concerned that I won't be getting the amount I should in the divorce.

I'm a stay at home dad.  I worked for the first 3 years of the marriage but after we had our daughter I decided to stay home while my wife ran her store.  But now she's dating one of our neighbors and a divorce looks imminent.  He sometimes sleeps over and I'm not allowed to sleep in my own bed.

What should I do about finding all the money she has?  It could be hidden in investments, in cash, in secret bank accounts or somewhere else.  I'm clueless.  She just gave me an allowance for the last 14 years.

Answer: In situations where there is a strong suspicion that assets are being hidden, it might be advisable to hire a forensic accountant to help locate assets and determine financial values.  Forensic accountants utilize their accounting knowledge and investigative skills to help uncover financial wrongdoing.

We have used forensic accountants to ensure that our clients receive all of the money to which they are entitled.  Their work has uncovered literally millions of dollars for our clients.
