Omitted Assets and Post-Judgment Enforcement
Skilled Family Attorney Handling Omitted Assets
During a divorce in California, spouses are legally obligated to fully disclose their assets and liabilities to ensure that marital property is fairly characterized and divided. When one spouse fails to disclose and divide equally all assets during the divorce process, the other may be entitled to 50% to 100% of these omitted assets plus attorneys fees and costs associated with recovering these assets.
While the issuance of a final decree of dissolution does end a marriage, the law relating to enforcement of final orders is complex and specific to each area of family law. It is important that you have an attorney who is knowledgeable in this complicated area to ensure that your rights are protected while dealing with a post-divorce dispute.
Unfortunately, not all persons abide by their legal obligations. It may be necessary to request that the Court order a party to comply with the requirements of the final judgment of dissolution. Enforcement can be time-consuming, often requires court intervention, and may require litigation if the party who has not complied with the terms of a final order does not take steps to right the wrong. Attorney Sam Christopher Allevato diligently advocates for you to resolve issues relating to post-divorce enforcement, whether by negotiation or litigation.
