Assets & Division

Assets and division

It is important to uncover hidden assets in a Divorce.

How can I make sure that I know all of my spouse’s assets?

Some spouses will use every tactic to hide assets or deceive their wife or husband about their true wealth. From over 25 years of divorce litigation experience, Jo Anne is wise to these schemes. She has represented spouses and assisted then to discover hidden assets in divorce, and recover their fair share of the marital estate.

The law requires full disclosure.

It is illegal in Illinois to intentionally conceal or divert marital assets — if the other spouse can prove it. This is where having an experienced attorney who is at home in the courtroom can level the playing field. We have prevailed in “discovering” concealed assets in numerous cases to our clients’ benefit.

We work with private investigators, forensic accountants and other experts to track down secret bank accounts, retitled property, undisclosed revenue and other tactics. Marital assets spent on extramarital affairs or gambling can also be factored into the division of marital property division or maintenance.

If you suspect that a spouse is hiding income or assets in your pending divorce, hire tough and strategic trial lawyers like us to hold them accountable.
