We are frequently engaged by attorneys who represent the spouse who doesn’t have access to the family’s financial information. In these cases, the forensic analysis often includes reviewing financial data to determine its accuracy and reasonableness; determining each spouse’s standard of living and disposable income; locating hidden assets; and determining what property may be considered separate from marital property, especially if one of the spouses runs a closely held business.
Our divorce services are often requested when the pending divorce involves:
- A Closely Held or Single Owner Business. One spouse is actively involved in running a closely held or single owner business. In this scenario, the opportunity to manipulate income and hide assets is limited only by the spouse's creativity.
- Financial Complexity. A forensic accounting investigation may reveal previously unknown bank accounts, investments and other assets.
- Claims of Separate Property. A forensic accounting investigation can disclose hidden or transferred assets, validate claims of separate property, or identify transmuted assets.
- A Premarital Agreement. A forensic accounting investigation is often needed to establish if assets remained as separate property or were transmuted. Also, forensic accounting can reveal incremental appreciation.
