You finally get access to your ex-spouse’s financial disclosure and it is all over the place with plenty of missing paperwork. The value of the family business seems extremely low. You can’t put your finger on it but your instinct is telling you that assets have been hidden…you need a forensic accountant in your divorce team.
Divorce cases often centre on the division of marital assets and debts; some are relatively simple to divide, others are more complicated. To be certain of a fair settlement, all assets must be uncovered and quantified. This is where the expertise of a forensic accountant comes in.
Unusually for a family law firm, Stowe Family Law has an in-house team of forensic accountants. They can access information, analyse it immediately and advise our solicitors where to concentrate their efforts when working on your case. This means we do not have to use up precious time dealing with other firms of accountants when such expertise are required for financial issues. Instead, our highly-experienced team can provide immediate advice about the likely scale and nature of a case. They can also raise questions when important financial information is missing and help trace hidden assets.
