Reason 9: The truth is elusive in an Illinois divorce.
Parties in a divorce case frequently do not tell the truth. It seems obvious, but sometimes forgotten, that many husbands or wives simply do not tell the truth during their divorces. Hidden assets, undisclosed income, and phony debts to business associates, parents, or relatives are commonplace in divorce.
In many ways, spouses in a divorce frequently think they are clever in coming up with lies, false accusations, as well as transfers of assets which they believe will never be discovered during a divorce case. In fact, your husband or wife may try to intimidate you into believing that they can successfully lie and get away with it.
An experienced Illinois divorce lawyer, like a magician, knows the truth behind the trick. As clever and creative as you may think your spouse may be, odds are that our experienced divorce lawyers will have already seen a similar lie, trick, or scheme. Experience counts: in the thousands of other cases that our divorce lawyers have handled, a similar trick will likely been used.
In one recent case, our lawyers at Martoccio & Martoccio found undisclosed income from the ex-husband of over $480,000, and our client received child support based upon that additional income. In another case, our attorneys successfully uncovered undisclosed stock options concealed by the husband from the wife which resulted in our client receiving over $450,000.
Remember: The truth is hard to find in the divorce case. Our Illinois divorce attorneys at Martoccio & Martoccio know where to look and how to find the truth for you.
