A number of forums devoted to Bitcoin have been filled with husbands discussing the option of using digital currencies, a London divorce lawyer has claimed.
It comes as courts are facing more legal battles from divorcing spouses who claim the other side has tried to conceal their wealth.
It is feared that spouses could use Bitcoin to hide wealth by transferring the currency between online wallets, to friends, or to areas outside of legal jurisdiction.Ayesha Vardag said that more divorce lawyers could start including digital currency in financial disclosure orders if there is evidence they have been used.
Courts in California are already beginning to issue search and discovery orders of assets - including digital currencies such as Bitcoin.
Another interesting use case for Bitcoin!
