During a divorce, a couple must divide up their marital assets. While this can happen out of court through mediation or collaborative divorce, a family division judge most commonly is responsible to ensure a fair and equitable distribution. As part of the division of assets and property, both spouses must make a full disclosure of all assets that they are in possession of. Unfortunately, some spouses may try to hide certain assets in order to avoid division, or to avoid a larger spousal support obligation. If you’re seeking divorce in New Hampshire, the attorneys at The Law Offices of Michael F. Mimno can help you find hidden assets during divorce.

While choosing to date prior to being officially divorced is a personal decision, it may have legal consequences. The attorneys at The Law Offices of Michael F. Mimno can tell you what you need to know. Read more
