How to Ensure That You Get Your Share of the Assets in Your Divorce

If you are getting divorced from your spouse, you are probably worried about a lot of things, including the loss of your relationship. However, one other thing that you might be concerned about is the division of assets. You could be afraid that your spouse will try to ensure that you don't get what you deserve, but this is less of a concern if you follow a few important steps. Follow these tips, and you should be able to get all of the assets that are owed to you.

Provide Proof

If at all possible, provide proof that you are entitled to certain things. For example, if you can show proof that an item was a gift from a family member, or if you have a prenuptial agreement in place that guarantees that certain things belong to you, you should gather up this evidence prior to your divorce hearing.

Find "Hidden" Assets

In some cases, spouses who know that they are about to file for divorce try to "hide" their assets, such as by turning them over to a family member's name or stashing them in a hidden place or a hidden bank account. Hiring a private investigator or doing your own snooping can help you provide proof of this behavior.

Hire a Lawyer

It is best to be represented in divorce court by a good divorce lawyer. Along with ensuring that you get the assets that you should, you can also get help with things like child custody and child support. For assistance, contact us to find out how we can help you here at Kovacs Law Office.
