When it comes to divorce without a doubt one of the biggest issues to resolve is money. Of course, money is often one of the biggest reasons people give for getting a divorce in the first place, so it stands to reason that it can be a source of contention when a divorce settlement is being ironed out. That’s why having a divorce attorney in Portland, OR is so important.
Over the years of dealing with divorce cases, we have seen just about everything, including many instances where at least one spouse was not completely forthright when it came to assets and possessions. There are many methods people employ to hide their assets and using technology for that purpose is a growing practice.
One of the latest high-tech methods to hide money is Bitcoin. Bitcoin is a digital currency that does not use banks or governments and its users can remain anonymous. By converting cash assets into Bitcoins a person could hide money from their spouse in a divorce.
In order to prevent this, you will need to know where to look. Keeping close tabs on your spouse’s finances is important. At Ronald Johnston Family Law we have many years of experiencing dealing with contentious divorce cases and with spouses who try to hide money.
