If a person is getting divorced and feels that his or her spouse may be hiding money, then the attorney may recommend hiring a forensic accountant in order to look at the case. The forensic accountant can sometimes determine whether the numbers are able to be reconciled or whether something is missing and looks suspicious.
The attorney can also request financial documentation through a process called “discovery”. This allows for more transparency regarding income and assets so that everyone should have the same information going into equitable distribution.
