Many assets are readily identifiable such as bank accounts wherein statements are routinely sent to the home or wherein interest or dividend income is reported on personal income tax returns. However, in the high asset and high net worth divorce, assets may not be so easily discernible.
When a party to a divorce action is self-employed, substantial income from that business may not always be reported. Personal expenses may be satisfied through the business. The business may be retaining earnings rather than paying the earnings out to the business owner. In short, a tax return may not disclose the totality of the income available to the party who is self-employed.
When a party to a divorce action is an executive at a large company, he or she may have an array of different forms of benefits that may not always be discernible by looking at a pay stub. For example, an executive may have stock, stock options, stock units, restricted stock units (RSU’’S), pensions, other retirement plans, forgivable loans, and may be eligible for termination benefits and signing bonuses. Sometimes the bonuses or other compensation do not vest immediately, but rather over a period of years or upon the triggering of certain events.
