Marital debts may play a significant role in divorce

Couples in Montana and elsewhere may accumulate a significant portion of assets and debts over the course of a marriage. Upon making the decision to part ways, many may feel that obtaining information on the true value of assets could be key to preparing for subsequent negotiations. However, marital debts may also play a significant role in the outcome of a divorce and these financial obligations can come in a variety of forms.

One of the most common forms of debt individuals carry pertains to carrying a revolving balance on a credit card. Should a couple choose to open a joint credit card account, any remaining balance on this account will be deemed marital property during divorce proceedings. Auto loans are another common source of debt among married couples, and if both names are listed on the loan, the credit scores of each party may suffer should payments on the loan fall behind.

Giving away assets is a common tactic to hide them

You're worried that your spouse is going to hide assets during the divorce. You've been trying to put together a mental list of all of the way that they may do so. Maybe they'll open up offshore accounts. Maybe they have a safety deposit box stuffed with cash. Maybe they transferred personal assets to their business to make them less visible.

These are all tactics that people use, and you need to be wary of them. You need to know what red flags to watch out for. Hiding assets and lying about it in court is illegal, but that does not necessarily mean your spouse won't try it.
