While it’s not uncommon for couples to keep their own separate bank accounts, if you find out that your ex has set up a new bank account that you don’t know about, this could be another red flag of hiding assets in divorce.

With this strategy, the idea is simply to tuck away income and other funds into accounts that former partners don’t know about; so, when it comes time to detail all of the marital assets in divorce proceedings, the spouse with the secret account won’t list it, and the other spouse won’t know to even ask about it.

Sign 6 – Your ex suddenly seems to have a “problem” gambling.

In some cases, exes may develop pretty elaborate cover stories for hiding assets in divorce. One such cover story can be that an ex has suddenly developed a gambling problem. With this contention, an ex may be able to:

  • Quickly hide a lot of valuable marital assets
  • Do so without you asking a lot of questions (if you believe the gambling back story).

However, if your ex has never really be into gambling and seems to have just gotten into it while you’re having marital problems or after you’ve discussed divorce, be suspicious. This can be a giant red flag of hiding assets in divorce.
