The Complex Challenges of High Net Worth Divorces
Property division for wealthy couples tends to be more complicated for
two main reasons – the large amount of assets they have, as well
as the challenge in properly valuating some of these assets. While some
assets like bank accounts or retirement accounts are simple to assign
a value to, others like business interests and intellectual property can
be much tougher.
Regrettably, individuals will sometimes use dirty tricks in an attempt
to hide their true income, or assets they don’t want divided. Forensic
accounting is a powerful tool to help you ensure a fair division of marital property.
What is a Forensic Accountant?
Forensic accountants are basically a cross between an accountant and a
C.S.I. investigator. They use their extensive accounting knowledge to
investigate a portfolio, looking for red flags such as missing information.
Sometimes forensic accountants simply find innocent mistakes – in
other cases, they uncover evidence of shady activity by the other spouse.
Forensic accountants can also play an important role in valuating complex
assets, which is actually a critical component of their investigations.
Regardless of whether or not your soon-to-be-ex is engaging in wrongful
actions, a forensic accountant can help ensure a fair division of marital property.
