Financial Misconduct in Divorce

Assets that were accumulated during a marriage are generally divided equally between the parties unless the court determines that an unequal division of the assets is fair. One circumstance where the court will often award an unequal division of assets is when the court finds one of the parties guilty of financial misconduct. This would include, for example, situations where a husband or wife used a credit card for gambling debts, spent marital funds on gifts or travel expenses for a paramour, or wasted financial assets of the marriage without the knowledge of the other party. Hiding marital assets or improperly spending assets from the marital estate are also examples of financial misconduct in a marriage. If financial misconduct is shown, the court can compensate the spouse who was injured by awarding that spouse a larger portion of the marital estate than they would otherwise be entitled to receive.
