Forensic Accountant’s Role in a Divorce

Forensic accountants can be very helpful and are oftentimes an important component of a divorce litigation team.  We uncover unreported income and assets, value closely-held businesses, prove claims of separate property, and provide guidance on tax consequences for the divorcing parties.

  • Does your tax return report investment income from an account at a financial institution that has not been disclosed during the divorce process?
  • Are there personal expenses being run through (or paid by) the business?
  • Did you receive an inheritance from a relative that should not be part of a property settlement?
  • Have you and your attorney considered the tax consequences of the assets you will take in a property settlement?

As an expert, we have worked with clients and divorce attorneys to provide clarity to the courts regarding all financial aspects of a divorce.

Over the years, we have been successful as part of the divorce litigation team because of:

1 Our ability to understand complex financial situations

2 Our understanding of the legal process

3 Our experience providing expert witness testimony

If you have questions about the process or would like more information, please contact Courtney Sparks White, J.D., LL.M., ASA, CVA at cwhite@claruspartners.com or 614-545-9100 x11.
