Hidden Assets in Clark County, Nevada Divorces

Because of the contentious nature of divorce, it is not uncommon for a spouse to try to hide assets from the other spouse during divorce proceedings.  This is especially true when it comes to the division of assets in a community property state like Nevada.

Hiding assets can be motivated by a variety of reasons, such as greed or the feeling of justification because of the other spouse’s behavior, but doing so is strictly prohibited under Nevada law.

Unfortunately, concealed assets often go undiscovered if the attorney handling your case doesn’t have experience discovering these assets in a Las Vegas divorce proceeding.

What Property is a Spouse Entitled to in a Divorce?

Nevada is a community property state. Pursuant to Nevada Revised Statute 123.220, community property is any property acquired after marriage by either spouse. In other words, this means both the assets and debts acquired by either spouse after marriage are equally owned by both spouses unless otherwise stated in a premarital or prenuptial agreement.
