Understanding the Role of Forensic Accounting in a Divorce

Retaining a divorce attorney who practices exclusively in the field of matrimonial law is critical, as s/he can skillfully guide you through the process while ensuring your interests are protected.

What Is A Forensic Accountant?

As the name suggests, a forensic accountant is essentially a financial investigator. These individuals are typically seasoned accountants, who have also received specialized training to help identify inconsistencies in a financial portfolio. This skillset can be beneficial in several ways, including:

  • Identifying and locating withheld assets – At Samuelson Hause PLLC, we take pride in what we call "a more civilized approach to divorce." Not everyone shares this sentiment, unfortunately, and spouses will often attempt to hide and/or transfer assets. When the financial portfolio is substantial, the skill of a forensic accountant is crucial in identifying, and locating any hidden or transferred assets.
  • Valuating assets – Even in an amicable divorce, business interests, commercial real estate, or intellectual property needs to be valued with the help of a forensic accountant.
