Minnesota courts can sanction spouses who hide assets

Property division is one of the most important issues in most Minnesota divorces. A spouse who gets a bad deal in the property settlement can experience the financial consequences for years to come. When one spouse tries to defraud the court and the other spouse by hiding assets or depleting bank accounts, it can create serious problems for the other spouse. If the fraud is discovered, the guilty spouse will face severe consequences.

How will a Minnesota court divide an IRA in a divorce?

When a Minnesota couple divorces, retirement accounts are often among the assets that must be split. Retirement accounts take many forms; two of the most common are the 401(k) and the Individual Retirement Account, or IRA. While a 401(k) is provided by one's employer, an IRA is opened and maintained by the individual. There are several different forms of IRAs, including traditional IRAs and Roth IRAs. IRAs can be funded with cash, stock, bonds or other assets. IRAs have significant tax advantages if they are set up and used properly.
