Asset Tracing & Hidden Assets

The full disclosure of your assets in a divorce is essential to a fair outcome, if you suspect your former partner isn’t complying, our experts are here to help you find resolution through asset tracing.

Tracing and securing all the financial assets of your partner ensures you put all the relevant information in front of the courts, which is vital for achieving a fair outcome.

In some divorce cases a party who seeks to limit financial liability to their former partner will try to conceal assets in businesses, property, trusts, and hedge funds.

Often, but not always, these assets are held offshore, making asset tracing an important element of the process.

The concealment of assets by any method is likely to constitute fraud, as one of the key documents in financial settlement proceedings (the Form E) requires parties to give ‘full, frank and clear disclosure’ and warns that criminal proceedings can be brought in the event that a party has been ‘deliberately untruthful’.
