Count on our Legal Team to Identify Hidden Assets in a High Asset Divorce
Helping Murfreesboro divorce clients secure a fair and equitable property distribution
The division of assets during divorce can be complicated and often stirs up negative emotions between you and your spouse. Additional complications arise when assets are hidden or difficult to ascertain. Fortunately for Kidwell, South, Beasley and Haley clients, our Murfreesboro high asset divorce attorneys have more than four decades of experience helping individuals identify hidden assets. We expertly advocate for our clients’ financial interests.
Navigating the separate property vs. marital property division
Tennessee law calls for an equitable distribution of marital property. While this does not necessarily mean a 50-50 split, the marital property should be divided fairly among spouses. Separate property—or property owned prior to the marriage or obtained in certain ways during the marriage—is not subject to division, so an important prerequisite to dividing the marital estate is identifying all assets (and debts) in order to determine which qualify as marital assets. In some situations, assets are hidden by one or both spouses as a result of misunderstanding the difference between these two types of property. With 40-plus years of collective high asset divorce experience, our attorneys know how to identify all potential property in order to appropriately classify it as part of the marital estate.
Murfreesboro high net worth divorce attorneys provide effective investigations into overlooked or hidden assets
Tennessee law does not require divorcing couples to affirmatively set forth all their assets, making it easier for a spouse to overlook or actively hide assets during a divorce. At Kidwell, South, Beasley and Haley, we are known for conducting effective and cost-efficient investigations, in order to identify any and all assets that are subject to division. Our high asset property division attorneys know how to leverage the pretrial discovery process to gain access to:
- Tax returns and accompanying schedules
- Personal financial statements
- Checking and savings account balances
- Investment and retirement account statements
- Loan applications
- Credit card statements and credit reports
- Insurance statements
Thanks to our many years of experience, we know where to look, what to look for and how to look for it. In some situations, it may be necessary to employ the services of a forensic accountant who can help our attorneys with asset location and valuation. We work with only the best financial and accounting experts and leave no stone unturned while always being mindful of your bottom line.
