    Answered . Within the context of a divorce case, she (through her attorney) can demand copies of your passport as well as copies of your bank account statements. In that way, she can piece together what trips you've taken recently. She also has the option of deposing you & having her attorney ask you the direct question under oath. I'd advise to schedule a free consultation with a NYC Divorce attorney for a full assessment.

    Answered . I don't believe there's any publicly-accessible national registry of airline flyers, if that's what you mean. But if your wife has access to any of your bank accounts, she could see any expenses paid for there - plane tickets, or purchases made in other countries. And, of course, she could ask people.

    Furthermore, if and when you two do divorce, she'll have the right to review your financial records in the course of the case, to ensure a fair property distribution under your state's laws. (You'll have the same right against her.) It's likely to come out eventually.

    Answered . Phone records, (roaming charges), social networking posts that include location, and photos with GPS tags could sometimes give this away, in addition to what the others already pointed out.

    Answered . I agree with counsel. Further, she can set you up by asking you under oath if you traveled overseas, record your answer and then present your passport and financial records to the court to show that you perjured yourself.

Divorce is the process of formally ending a marriage. Divorces may be jointly agreed upon, resolved by negotiation, or decided in court.

Deciding between a Divorce and a Legal Separation

A legal separation and a divorce are different because a separation does not end the marriage. Spouses live apart and remain married.
