Don't let deception cost you in a contested divorce

The end of a relationship is never an easy ordeal, either emotionally or financially. You may be so caught up in trying to deal with the day-to-day emotions that it may be difficult to consider the financial ramifications that can impact a contested divorce. While California is a community property state, that does not always deter one spouse from attempting to deceive the other in the process.

There are so many matters that vie for your attention during a divorce. If there are children involved, then child custody and support may take priority in your mind. These two aspects of a divorce are of utmost importance, but making sure your soon-to-be ex-spouse does not attempt to prevent you from receiving your share of the marital assets is also an important point to guard against.

California divorce laws require that both parties share all information regarding assets and debts during the entire process, even after you have officially separated. In spite of this requirement, this has not prevented one party from attempting to hide or deceive the other party or the court concerning certain assets. There are different ways a party may attempt to conceal assets, whether through not divulging an asset or purposely misleading you about the value of one.

The importance of ensuring that you receive your fair share of the marital property and holdings cannot be overstated. In many situations, having assistance on your side -- especially during a contested divorce -- to make sure that full disclosure occurs may make all of the difference when you are trying to rebuild your life, both emotionally and financially. You do have access to experienced divorce professionals who are skilled at taking a full accounting of both debts and assets and can help keep your former spouse above board, thereby helping to ease your worries so you can concentrate on your own well-being.
