Several people lately have told me to open an account in Switzerland or Grand Caymen because I will be getting a divorce soon. I travel a great deal, mostly in Canada and Mexico, but would have to stop if divorced to stay home with special needs children. Never saw this comming.All credit cards are in my name, All properties are in our names jointly, but financed by his parents.My lawyer said this is bad-- we never write checks, just hand them cash every time we sell some cattle. One of the properties is a small ranch we have built up in another county. The cattle and horses are not registered to anyone, my in-laws are 90 and keep their cattle there also-rent free. I noticed my husband was selling off some investments,stocks,tools guns,and farm equipment,even our 65 Superbeetle Conv. He seems to be ready to split. When I ask him where the money is,, He says he had to give to his parents,and pay for large improvements at ranch. I found a receipt for 30,000. in an account I did not know about in his name only. The lawyer said the in-laws would claim we did not pay and change the properties to their name long before the divorce could go thru. ,and I would need cash enough for all bills for 6 months. I usually have only 500. in my account average. I could get some cash to stash away, but do not know where to hide it. Is there such a thing as an international brockerage account I could hold stocks in that couldn't be found during a divorce? Help! Any suggestions?
