The division of assets in a divorce is supposed to involve equitable gains and losses for each side. However, a financially savvy spouse may try to take advantage of you. There are legal means of doing so, such as having a better understanding of which properties may grow in value. There are also illegal means, such as hiding marital assets that should be accounted for during the divorce. You do not need to view your spouse with outright suspicion, but you should be cautious and aware of ways you can protect yourself.
