Forensic accountants are often called as expert witnesses in divorce cases to help family law attorneys uncover hidden assets and financial inconsistencies during a couple’s breakup. Using technical analysis and a trained eye, a forensic accountant can follow the money to uncover these hidden assets or income. Mike Rosten, CPA/CFE will speak on these financial issues and investigations related to divorce at the twenty-fourth Annual Family Law Conference on March 7 in Ely, Nevada.
Rosten says it is not uncommon for one partner to commit “premeditated divorce”- a split they have planned for years as they begin to hide away. “They hope these hidden investments will not be divided during the divorce, therefore giving them a much larger portion to enjoy after the divorce is over,” he said.
