Litigation Support Engagement Find Hidden Assets
We were engaged by prominent family law Attorney Monica Salis to investigate hidden and under reported assets. We used the following investigative techniques to uncover underreported cash from the spouse business.
We examined each statement carefully to identify any large transfers or withdrawals. Regular transfers of small amounts may also indicate a pattern of concealing assets, so don’t ignore those. We challenged our team by asking, how much and how often was money transferred? Where and for what purpose was, the money spent?
The spouse attempted to hide cash and, on some occasions, use the pretense of a debt when none exists. He transferred money to a friend and other family members for the purpose of collecting it later, after the divorce. We track the payments to family and friends close to the spouse. The results of our investigation revealed the spouse had twice as much income as he reported on his tax returns, business bank account and financial affidavit.
