When might a forensic accountant help in a divorce case?

It is no secret that every Massachusetts divorce is different and that what works for one divorcing couple may not necessarily do so for the next. In other words, if you or your spouse are particularly high earners, or if one of you has an especially complicated financial profile, your divorce may take longer than one involving two low-income earners who were only married a short while.

How do you deal with unique items in a divorce?

Nobody expects divorce to be easy, but some of the complications Massachusetts couples have when they decide to formally end their marriages would probably surprise you. Many of the things you simply shared during your partnership would likely take on a whole new aspect after you decided to split up. 

How can I protect my business during a divorce?

As an entrepreneur in Massachusetts, protecting your business against all risks is crucial. However, many business owners neglect to safeguard their business against divorce, which can result in lost assets and ownership. Accordingly, Inc. recommends the following steps to ensure your enterprise remains protected even at the end of your marriage.

What is marital property?

There are many issues to negotiate during a divorce. One of the most problematic may be that of property division. Massachusetts is an equitable distribution of property state, meaning all marital property is divided between spouses according to what the judge presiding over the case deems fair. While you may consider the family home, vehicles, furniture and savings account balance the only forms of marital property, you may want to think again. There are many types of marital property you may not have considered but are entitled to a portion of.

Beating the pressures of wealth and divorce

Wealth has little effect on the harmony between people in a marriage, after a certain amount. In fact, there is evidence that certain levels of wealth are more conducive to combative divorces. Understanding the pressures involved could help people avoid this type of trouble in their own divorces here in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

Is your spouse hiding assets ahead of divorce?

If you and your spouse are currently heading toward a Massachusetts divorce, chances are, the two of you experienced a breakdown of trust in your partnership somewhere along the way. Maybe you have suspicions about infidelity, or maybe you believe your spouse was being less than upfront with you when it comes to finances. Unfortunately, many divorcing spouses start to suspect that the other might be hiding assets in an attempt to get a better deal during divorce, and regrettably, in many instances, where there is smoke, there is fire.
