Family separations and divorces are fraught with anger, anxiety and fear. The “unknown” of what may happen leaves you feeling like you are standing on shifting sand. That your life is about to change irrevocably is a given, but to what extent and how to mitigate any potential damage is the frightening reality you may feel is ahead of you.

You may not have been the main financial provider or custodian of the family finances during your marriage and this may leave you feeling insecure and wary in relation to all things money. Your focus during your marriage may have been on rearing your children and maintaining a family home. You may have no idea of what assets the family has and where they are, you may have a family business which provides the sole source of family income and you don’t know how much it is worth, you may have suspicions that your ex spouse hasn’t told you the whole financial story. Your problem is that you don’t know how and where to start looking to get some answers…but there is a way forward.

In order to get a clear understanding of what has happened to the money in your marriage you will need a professional with a specific skill set in forensic accounting. I can help solve your problems by reviewing what your ex spouse has done with family money, value the family business, search for any hidden assets, test the truth of the assets and liability disclosed by your ex spouse on the financial statement and trace the use of family funds.

In addition to providing these professional services I have prepared a number of webinars and tools to inform and support you to understand what is possible in the search for financial truth during your separation and to better prepare you to face the property settlement negotiations.
