Are you nearing the time when you believe divorce is the inevitable outcome for your marital challenges? You are not alone. Many Florida residents face this prospect every day yet that does not make it easy for you or anyone else. However, at this time, it is important take care of yourself and protect your right to marital assets. Today’s technology provides ample opportunities for people to hide assets or other activities from their spouses. At the same time, the Huffintgon Post notes that technology also makes it more possible for these things to be discovered.
Even without login information to your spouse’s email account, there are many ways you can track online activities and communications. Online browsing can be tracked and special software can be installed on a computer that tells far more than simply what sites are visited as it can record every keystroke. Even following a person on social media can point to clues as asset-hiding spouses can easily get sloppy. Posting information about a big promotion on professional networking sites but not telling you about it could be a flag that income has increased but you are not supposed to know.
In addition to learning about the potential that bank or investment accounts exist that you did not know about, you might also learn about affairs or other things your spouse is involved in. While these may be emotionally difficult things to know, they are important for you to be aware of when getting divorced.
