The very real consequences of concealing assets during divorce

Any time two people divorce, there is the potential for one or both parties to make mistakes that make the process more difficult and contentious. Not only can certain missteps hinder negotiations in mediation and cause added stress on both people, they can also lead to far more severe consequences, including criminal charges.

Is it always wise to try and keep the marital home in a divorce?

Owning a home is part of the American dream. People often imagine getting married, buying a house and raising a family in it.  It is also usually the single most expensive asset families own.  Thus, it is no surprise that when spouses separate, the home is usually at the center of divorce disputes.

While it may seem premature or taboo, there is no law that prevents separated spouses from being in relationships with other people during their divorce proceedings. Your soon to be former spouse cannot prevent you from dating or even demand that you receive less property in your divorce simply because you are in a new relationship. This does not mean, however, that there are not circumstances where a new relationship could throw a wrench into your custody and divorce matters.
