Forensic Accounting Backed by 100+ Years' Experience

Forensic Accounting

One of the key distinctions between typical family law firms and those capable of handling the most complex contested divorce cases lies in their financial knowledge and resources. At the Burch Shepard Family Law Group, we take pride in our ability to provide and compel full financial disclosure in order to secure positive outcomes for our clients.

Marital disputes and breakdowns often involve a loss of trust on financial matters, necessitating the use of forensic accounting and other specialized resources to get to the bottom of one spouse's financial dealings — especially if our client suspects his or her spouse of hiding assets or income. In other situations, CPAs, forensic accountants and other specialized experts can be essential resources for demonstrating our client's exclusive right to separate, non-marital property.

Allegations Of Hidden Assets? Dispute Over Separate Vs. Community Property?

Our skilled Newport Beach family law attorneys' experience extends across the spectrum of high net worth divorce, including representation of business owners and their spouses, as well as others with high income and various means of hiding that income.

Forensic accounting methods often come into play when, for example:

  • Income from a closely held business or professional practice may have been siphoned off into a private account.
  • Assets have been squandered or hidden in anticipation of divorce proceedings.
  • Money or property actually acquired during the marriage is now being positioned as separate property predating the marriage and thus belonging to one spouse alone.

Our highly regarded Orange County law firm is a proven resource for getting to the bottom of a deceptive spouse's financial dealings and obtaining just community property division, as well as fair spousal support, upward deviations from child support guidelines or other positive results in intensely contested divorce cases.
