Hidden Income & Assets

Helping Clients Receive Their Fair Share

Do you suspect that your spouse is hiding assets or income in order to avoid losing a portion of them in your divorce?

It is important to discuss your concerns with a divorce lawyer who understands how to identify, evaluate and properly distribute hidden assets. The attorneys of Murphy & Dunn, P.C. in Peoria, Illinois help clients find marital assets that have been hidden in various schemes to defraud the other spouse.

It Belongs to the Estate

We have the knowledge and resources available to detect a wide range of hidden assets and marital income. It does not matter whose name is on the account. If the income was earned or the assets were acquired wholly or partially during the marriage, they become part of the marital estate and must be divided as part of the property settlement agreement.

Our lawyers know that the trail that leads to in a stash of hidden assets often begins with a spouse's uneasy feeling. Do not disregard your suspicions. We will discuss your concerns and may engage the assistance of a forensic accountant to locate the assets or income in question.

Dissipated Income

We are also able to help bring dissipated income and assets back into the marital estate. Sometimes one party will give a large sum of money to a friend or family member in the hope of keeping it outside of the property division process. If this occurred without your knowledge or consent, those assets remain part of the marital estate and must be divided equitably.

Whether you suspect a sophisticated scheme involving offshore investments or money stashed in a separate account at the local bank, we can help. Please do not hesitate to contact us to arrange an initial consultation.
