portfolios tend to be especially difficult. Although it is absolutely
critical to retain a Katy divorce attorney to guide you through the process

Unique Challenges for Wealthy Couples
High net-worth divorces tend to be especially complex for a few reasons.
First, these couples tend to have many different types of valuable assets,
from boats and cars, to stocks and business interests. Additionally, many
of these assets (especially business ownership) are notoriously challenging to value.
Divorce can be a contentious process and, unfortunately, wealthy spouses
sometimes engage in dirty tricks to try to hide assets or their true income.
In these instances, forensic accounting can be a valuable tool to help

specially trained to look for missing information and wealth that may
have been withheld. Essentially, they look for any red flags which could
indicate underhanded activity on the part of your soon-to-be-ex.
Beyond the investigative aspect, forensic accountants are often also skilled
in the valuation of assets, as it is typically an important part of an
