A large part of Financial Forensics family law practice revolves around marital dissolution. No one wants to go through a divorce, but when you do, it's in your interest to ensure that the marital estate is divided according to the law. Financial Forensics can help you sort through the financial assets of the maritial estate, and determine if a complete accounting is being provided to you and the court. The ability to see a complete money picture in a divorce gives you some comfort in knowing that you are getting what you're entitled to under the law.
When a family-owned business is among the assets to be divided, it's important to gain a complete understanding of the value of that business. Engaging Financial Forensics to undertake a valuation of the business may paint a picture different than what is initially shown to the court. Often times, there are under- and over-valued aspects of the business, and an analysis of both the accounting and bank records by Financial Forensics can give you the edge in negotiating fair compensation for your share of the business. A relatively small investment in a valuation of a family business by Financial Forensics can potentially provide you with a much more favorable settlement than one based on the book value of the business.
Financial Forensics examines all known financial accounts to find any transfers, disbursements, or unusual transactions that may locate assets not disclosed to the court. This examination is systematic and well-documented for any needed use in litigation.
