Uncovering assets hiding in your spouse’s employment

On Behalf of | Oct 31, 2019 | Uncategorized |

Many spouses who are going through a divorce are reluctant to trust their ex. This may be because their divorcing spouse has already breached their trust, or it may be because the hostility present in the relationship gives them a reason to believe that all trust has been lost.

During any divorce, marital assets will need to be divided. If you have been married for many years or if you are in a high-asset marriage, there will likely be a significant amount of assets that need to go through the division process. Before assets are divided, they will need to be identified. If you want a fair outcome, you should make sure that no assets are overlooked. The following are ways that your spouse may be hiding assets in their employment.

Stock options

Your divorcing spouse may be hiding the fact that they have stock options as part of their employment contract. This could mean that they may be able to gain significant assets in the future, and you may be entitled to a share of these assets.

Vacation pay

Your spouse may be intentionally saving up their vacation days so that they can get a payout at the end of the year. You may be entitled to a portion of this pay.


Your divorcing spouse may be trying to delay their bonuses so that they can benefit from them after the divorce is finalized. You should, therefore, work on uncovering this type of deceptive behavior.

If you are going through a divorce, you should make sure that you uncover your spouse’s hidden assets so that you gain the divorce settlement that you deserve.
