Electronic Discovery and Issues In Divorce

While it is not the norm in a divorce proceeding, there are times when one party will attempt to hide assets from their soon to be ex-spouse. When this happens, the best thing to do is hire a forensic accountant in order to find the hidden funds or assets. In an effort to obtain information, some spouse's go through extreme measures. In a case here in Florida a wife reportedly installed spyware on her husband's computer and later tried to use information obtained in divorce proceedings. She was not allowed because Florida bans the interception of these type of communications. Therefore, when you are trying to obtain financial information in a divorce proceeding, it is important and necessary to use all legal means to find anything that may be hidden.
