Hidden Assets/Marital Fraud

Full financial disclosure is an absolute, non-negotiable obligation in any California divorce. If you believe your divorcing spouse - or a biological parent required to pay child support - is hiding assets or income, it is essential to work with an attorney determined to expose the truth and win a just result.

Attorneys Carla Hartley, Robert Maxwell and John Castellano have dealt successfully with many financially complex disputes, including breaches of fiduciary duty and acts of marital fraud by high-net-worth individuals. It is disturbingly common for business owners, self-employed consultants, executives with offshore accounts, and others to deceive their partners in the effort to minimize child and spousal support obligations and keep an unfair share of property for themselves.

Aggressively Pursuing Favorable Property Division And Support Outcomes

Although we help clients settle the vast majority of divorce cases out of court, our legal team takes an extremely aggressive approach to acts of deception. Carla Hartley, Robert Maxwell and John Castellano adamantly believe in meeting an aggressor with all firepower and maneuvers at her disposal. We will:

  • Thoroughly investigate your suspicions that money or property is being concealed, calling upon forensic accountants, business valuation experts and other qualified professional resources
  • Spare no effort in bringing forth evidence that compels the opposition to negotiate in good faith or face a devastating outcome at trial
  • Target the most favorable outcome possible for you - including full forfeiture, rather than a 50-50 split, of assets not disclosed

At Hartley, Maxwell & Castellano, we pursue justice with integrity and observe Christian principles like those expressed in Psalm 7:15-16: "He who digs a hole and scoops it out falls into the pit he has made. The trouble he causes recoils on himself; his violence comes down on his head."
