I work with divorcing parties who have concerns about the money. While I can work with either party, it is most often the woman who is in need of my services. I focus "lifestyle analysis," which is a detailed tracing of funds through bank accounts, credit card accounts, and investment accounts to determine where the money went and how much the family's lifestyle costs. My results are used to track down hidden money or make calculations related to spousal and child support.
I truly believe that knowledge is power. I am here to help inform the parties about their money. Where did the money go? How do we make sure there is a fair division of the assets and the income?
