Full financial disclosure is not optional for either party in any California divorce. Allegations that one spouse is not fulfilling this fiduciary duty — but is hiding income or assets in order to avoid it — lie at the heart of some of the most intensely contested and heavily litigated divorce cases.
At The Law Offices of Burch, Coulston & Shepard, LLP, we provide aggressive family law representation with integrity. This means that our Newport Beach family lawyers often actively help our clients understand and meet their obligations in divorce proceedings. In other situations, we must independently investigate our client's knowledge or suspicion that his or her spouse has hidden income or assets.
In some situations, basic investigation and our respected attorneys' forceful, strategic insistence on disclosure of hidden assets is enough to get results. In other cases, forensic accounting and other specialized disciplines must be employed.
When necessary, we call upon experts able to track electronic transactions, gain access to non-U.S. financial records and provide other sophisticated services. Our well-established Orange County law firm will put an entire team of professionals to work on your case rapidly and efficiently.
Ultimately, your divorce lawyer may need to do more than prove the existence of hidden assets. He or she must have the legal skill and experience to use that information to get results for you — by taking appropriate legal action to preventing further movement or squandering of those assets.
To explain your concerns to action-oriented yet practical and balanced Newport Beach divorce and hidden assets lawyers in Orange County, California, call (949) 565-4158 today.
