Thorough Asset Discovery
In some high net worth divorces, it may be discovered that not all assets can be accounted for. One spouse may be accused of hiding money. It is essential that all assets and property are uncovered in order to have them properly evaluated. With proper evaluation, the assets and property can be divided according to the New York equitable distribution property laws. Our firm can enlist forensic accountants and other experts when searching for assets, including looking for those that may be hidden in a foreign, overseas or offshore account.
If the divorcing couple is involved in a family or closely held business, it is essential that the business be thoroughly assessed and evaluated in order for it to be properly divided between spouses. This can be an overwhelming task, as all of the business's documents, accounts and associations must be examined. However, if this is not done as thoroughly as possible by business valuation experts, there is no way to ensure that the spouses are getting their fair shares of the business.
