College costs keep going up and divorce rates remain high. For many families, these two sociological realties have great practical implications.
It goes without saying that one of the top things people argue about in high-asset divorces is money. But what many people don't realize is that the biggest disputes in divorce don't always end with asset division and alimony.

In fact, a recent study found that 15 million people are hiding money from their live-in partners in financial accounts such as checking and savings accounts. Many spouses move money around because they believe that it will protect them in a divorce, but you may be able to track down the assets that they've hidden if you know where to look.
