Will I Need a Forensic Accountant for My Divorce in Kane County?

Full Financial Disclosure is Crucial in an Illinois Divorce

During your divorce, you may suspect that your spouse has misrepresented his or her income or has hidden assets. A forensic accountant may be able to assist in discovering the truth by conducting a comprehensive lifestyle analysis. This process can help reveal your spouse’s undisclosed assets and income to ensure a more equitable divorce judgment.

Under the best of circumstances, divorce is a complicated legal matter which requires creativity and compromise in reaching a reasonable resolution. The process, however, is dependent upon transparency and full cooperation by each spouse. Sadly, in many divorce cases, one spouse will look to gain an advantage by hiding marital or personal assets or by disguising sources of income. Without full financial disclosure by both parties, an equitable divorce settlement is not possible.

Hidden assets affect more than just the division of property. A spouse’s financial resources are also taken into account when determining the appropriateness of spousal maintenance, as well as in calculating child support. At Goostree Law Group, we are prepared to help you find hidden assets and income by utilizing a forensic accountant when necessary.

A forensic accountant is a financial professional who has been trained to review transaction records and documents looking for discrepancies and unexplained revenues. He or she will conduct a comprehensive lifestyle analysis of your spouse’s financial situation, finding any and all undisclosed assets and resources. The analysis may include personal accounts and expenditures, as well as those of any businesses in which your spouse has invested interests. Your spouse may be required by the court to answer for any inconsistencies or discrepancies revealed in the lifestyle analysis.
