A hidden bank account may consist of the subject going to a small bank and opening an account that is unknown to the spouse, so that he can conceal the money for an extended period of time, as the couple begins talking about a divorce. Individuals and businesses frequently try to engage in hidden accounts in order to avoid losing their assets to court-ordered judgements, in order to evade federal or state taxes, or in divorce proceedings when assets declared by each party are determined as marital assets and child support. When attempts are unsuccessful, these companies or organizations put assets into special accounts only available to the individual(s) named in the accounts.
