Our Efficient Capabilities
We carefully review the dynamics of your unique situation to develop a customized strategy that meets your needs. Our team works diligently to provide the comprehensive forensic accounting services required to reach an acceptable divorce settlement. We offer:
Research & Analytics
We use our investigative techniques and knowledge of accounting principles to discover undisclosed income and assets. It can be challenging to detect such issues, but we have mastered our approach to reveal the facts of the situation. By reviewing a couple's net worth at different points throughout the marriage and reviewing bank deposits, we can assess whether the reported incomes are consistent with changes in net worth. You can trust our team to approach your case with a thorough, unbiased mindset and strategy.
We carefully analyze pre-marital and marital investment accounts, business interests, and real estate to be considered for marital property awards. By going through the data, we can determine the non-marital and marital components of contributions and withdrawals into these assets. Our forensic accountants also seek out any previously undeclared credit cards, investments, and bank accounts. Throughout our investigation, we look into:
During a lifestyle analysis, we review expenses and income to develop an understanding of the day-to-day living situation of both parties during the course of the marriage. We review and evaluate credit card statements, bank statements, and investment accounts and then craft a prospective marital budget. Our completed marital budget specifically accounts for post-divorce expenses not incurred during the marriage.
In many situations, one spouse is more actively involved in the financial management of a shared business. It can be difficult for the other spouse to accurately determine the value of the closely-held company. Our forensic accountants perform impartial, accurate, and defensible valuations that assess the business' true worth. Even for complex cases involving personal goodwill or non-marital asset deductions, you can trust us to provide you with reliable results.
