Normally, forensic accountants are utilized in investigative endeavors concerning white collar crimes. For example, if a person is money laundering or is committing tax fraud or financial fraud, a forensic accountant can investigate all records to determine where there are inconsistencies that point to the crime at hand. In your divorce, a forensic accountant can be an invaluable asset. This is normally necessary when you suspect that your spouse is hiding accounts that have not been reported to on the divorce paperwork.
For example, if you suspect that your husband has a separate account which he is using to fund an affair with his girlfriend, and he has not reported this money on the divorce papers, you may want to hire a forensic accountant. A forensic accountant can carefully investigate your finances and determine if there are any situations which prove inconsistency and the need to re-create your divorce papers. Forensic accountants are also helpful when one or both spouses own a business or professional practice where it is easy to hide money or income and increase expenses.
