Basics are the same:
* All assets should be declared to be looked at by the court process
* Using the laws of the state, then only a percentage of the assets would be considered "on the table" for split (this is where it really pays to know the state's details on it...and/or have an attorney that's good with this part)
Doing a transfer/loan/etc. to a relative, friend, or whatever...that's considered fraud.
I haven't personally heard of a case where criminal charges are brought forward by somebody trying it, but I've heard of several situations where a person got fried in family court (money-wise) for trying it.
