Forensic Accountants in Divorce

Choosing a Forensic Accountant for a New Jersey Divorce

The use of forensic accountants in high-asset divorce cases is common. Two situations frequently present themselves to the family law attorney.

One is where a spouse has little knowledge of the value of the business of the other spouse. In such situations, the use of a skilled forensic accountant may uncover substantial deferred income or assets that can be subject to distribution in the matrimonial case.

The second situation is where a spouse owns a business and is justly concerned that a forensic accountant hired by an adversary will unfairly value that business — thus crippling that spouse's ability to continue with his or her business, and otherwise cause that spouse to make inequitable distribution to the other.

While these concerns are completely opposite, the input of the family law attorney in guiding the client through the processes of selecting a forensic accountant will be critical to the ultimate success of the case.

Choosing the Right Forensic Accountant

A lawyer experienced in high-asset divorce will help the client choose a qualified forensic accountant to avoid inequities in the final resolution of the case. Most divorce clients have no idea who to select as a forensic accountant or why.
