What are signs a spouse might be hiding money?

If you are a married person in Florida and concerned about the future of your marriage, you may have noticed some differences in how your spouse has been behaving for a while. These differences may be directly related to the future of your marriage but they may also be important to you financially. Divorce, like marriage, is an event that may have significant financial repercussions for both parties. In some marriages, one spouse might try to stash away assets before commencing a divorce to avoid some financial loss down the road.

As explained by Forbes, hiding assets can be done in a variety of ways and you might not always have immediate proof that this is happening but you may well notice behaviors that tip you off to this potential. One of these behaviors might be your spouse too often forgetting to share details about certain expenses or costs with you. If historically both of you have been very open about what you spend on things and this starts to happen, you might want to take note.

When it comes to your investment portfolio and strategy, if your spouse suddenly makes or recommends a very different approach without reason that you feel is valid, you might also want to pay attention to other clues about money being hidden.

This information is not intended to provide legal advice but is instead meant to give divorcing spouses in Florida some ideas of what they should watch for when contemplating or agreeing to a divorce to protect themselves financially.
