Signs to Watch Out for in Orange County, Florida Divorce

Even if you’re not the one who handles the finances for the family, there are still a number of things that you can keep an eye on to give you a hint about whether or not your spouse is keeping money from you.

No attorneys. Does your spouse want to keep attorneys out of it? This may be because they have things to hide and know that lawyers are more likely to find them.

Self-employed. If your spouse is self-employed, there is a good chance that the income reported on their tax return isn’t 100 percent accurate. There are lots of ways for freelancers and small businesses to make their income look smaller, so it’s important that you receive a detailed account of all expenses and revenue.

Lifestyle and expenses. When the majority of your monthly income is going towards your mortgage payment and you are still dining out at fancy restaurants every night, it’s a pretty safe bet that there is “hidden money” coming from somewhere.
