Is knowingly misrepresenting assets during a divorce a criminal

This answer was rated:

Is knowingly misrepresenting assets during a divorce a criminal offence in scotland?
Thank you for your question.

Any attempt to mislead or deceive a court could be prosecuted as a criminal offence. Whether or not the offence is prosecuted by the Crown would depend on the circumstances and the gravity of the misrepresentation.

But the answer to your question is yes it would be a crime.

I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
