Atlanta Divorce Lawyer
I’m Dave Ward from the Ward Law Firm and I help protect the business owner who’s facing divorce. In this series, we’re talking about the top 10 mistakes that people make when facing a divorce in Georgia and the third mistake that we see people make that invariably ends up coming around and biting them in the end is attempting to hide or destroy assets or evidence, and this is an enormous mistake that I can’t understate the importance of avoiding.
One of the truths that most people don’t really realize is that throughout the divorce process, as the saying goes, ‘the truth will out.’ It’s going to come out in some way, some form or fashion, almost invariably in ways that nobody anticipates and that nobody expected. And it’s for this reason that when people do attempt to either hide evidence or destroy evidence, those types of things, they’re going to end up getting caught. And when they do, there are substantial penalties that the court is going to levy for having attempted to do those things.
So if you’re facing a divorce, it’s critically important that you understand that you absolutely should not attempt to hide or destroy evidence. Cause like I said, invariably it is going to come out and when it does, the situation is going to be a whole lot worse than if that evidence had simply been put out in the open right from the beginning.
