Debra, Expert

Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** will be working on your question today and I am looking forward to our conversation.

Customer
Hey Debra I have my friend here now

Debra, Expert

OK
Please go ahead!

Customer
Hi there, Could you please tell me if my spouse provided all his assets and signed off that everything was listed on financials for divorce, but I find a huge hidden asset, lets say 200,000 in a paypal account, what would happen?
Customer
Would I receive the entire hidden assest of 200,000 and have my lawyer fees covered by him because of the length of time its taken me to find these hidden assets and would he receive any charges or penalties?

Debra, Expert

No. There will be no basis for you having the entire $200,000. It would just be added to his list of assets when you're working out the equalization payment but he would lack credibility and if you're going back to court because of this then he would end up having to cover a very good part of your legal fees.

Does that make sense.

Customer
My spouse has a history of fraudent behaviour. ie, He drives transport truck-car carrier and he use to travel to the US every day and come home the same day. One time he bought a dirt bike in the states, brought it back across border and the amt he listed that he paid for it was incredibly low, so low that the border officiers pulled him aside and he received a fine and his Fast Card used to cross border everyday for work was suspended for 1 year. Another incident was, shortly after our separation, he was in an accident on the hwy driving home from work in his own vehicle,pick up truck. He had to go to hospital, but found out from my adult son that he went to check out the damages on the truck and found shit load of cash. My ex had stored a bunch of cash in his vehicle and I asked divorce lawyer repeatedly why can't we get the police report from that accident to see if the cash was noted in the report.
Customer
The Paypal account is the tip of the ice berg. I know theres more hidden assets to be found, ie, his bank accounts shows him moving money around and actually taking 3000-5000 dollars a month. So my plan is to get access to the paypal account first, because I know theres a huge amount of money there. Paypal did not give me the balance, but they were shocked when they opened his account while on the phone with me. So after I know Paypal balance, Then I'll have enough money to do a full investigation on hidden assets from him.
Customer
Can you recommend the best way to find these hidden assets? Do Divorce lawyers look for hidden assets or should I be employing some other service to help me find these assets. I'm predicting amount hidden, anywhere from 500,000 to 1,5000,000.

I was sure I had  answered this so I don't understand where the answer is. This also isn't on my open list anymore which definitely leads me to believe I had answered it. I'm sure I said that the divorce lawyer would likely hire a private investigator and probably need a forensic accountant as well.
