Laws in the state of Wyoming make it clear that all real estate, debts, privately owned property, and accounts must be disclosed during your divorce proceeding. The state does recognize the differences between personal and marital property, but you must disclose everything to the court and your soon-to-be ex. Property that is listed as “personal” may be contested during the divorce proceeding, if your spouse claims he or she made contributions to it during the life of the marriage.
Assets that can be contested during a high-net-worth divorce include:
- Residential properties
- Commercial properties
- Rental properties
- Bank accounts
- Retirement accounts
- Vehicles and boats
- Investment accounts
You need an experienced and aggressive Gillette divorce lawyer to protect your best interests and hard-earned capital.
With a divorce on the horizon, one spouse might attempt to hide assets from the court, whether by transferring them to another person’s name, pretending to pay off phony debts to friends and relatives, or physically hiding jewelry and other valuables. Your spouse may be hiding assets if you find:
- Missing financial records and documentation for certain periods of time.
- A dramatic change in income when the marriage started to go south or when the divorce was initiated. A spouse may attempt to defer income until after the divorce is finalized to avoid sharing it in the settlement.
- Account balances begin to decrease for unknown reasons.
If your spouse’s expenses appear to exceed his or her reported income, that may indicate a stream of unreported income.
