Some cases involve high wealth/net worth. Our experience has taught us that the myriad of emotions involved are the same for litigants in a high net worth divorce as in an average net worth.
However these cases often involve complex issues such as business and partnership evaluations, a determination of actual cash flow, trust and estate issues, and an analysis of complicated income tax returns.
We may involve a forensic accountant when these types of issues are present in a case. Forensic accountants are also invaluable when there are allegations that the income tax return does not reflect the true income of the parties. This is not uncommon with self-employed individuals, among others.
Lastly, it is important to factor in the tax implications of a proposed distribution of property or alimony proposal so that the parties are each treated fairly.
