If you are involved in a high asset divorce, you have more to lose than most other divorcing couples in Ohio. You may need to call upon the assistance of a forensic accountant. According to the Forensic CPA Society, a forensic accountant is an accountant who specializes in helping with litigation and disputes through finding evidence to back up claims.

If you hire a forensic accountant for your divorce, you can expect him or her to do plenty of investigation into your finances. If, for example, you suspect your spouse of hiding assets, your accountant will look for evidence and provide it to your attorney so it can be presented at court. The accountant also will assist with figuring out the value of your property. He or she may testify at court on your behalf as well.

Forensic accountants also work other cases besides divorces. They may work negligence cases or on behalf of a business. They may also investigate criminal activity for law enforcement. They use their combined skills in accounting, investigation and litigation to assist whomever they are working for.

If you suspect that your divorce will have issues when it comes to finances, it can be a good idea to hire a forensic accountant. This person can serve as great support and even provide you with expert skills, advice and testimony if needed during your divorce. This may be exactly what you need to ensure you get what you deserve in your divorce settlement. This information is for education and is not legal advice.
