We are often asked what to do when a spouse is secretive about money.  In these situations, an accountant will be retained to complete a forensic evaluation of the finances.  This occurs in many different scenarios, including the following:

  • Has your spouse been hiding money or become secretive about finances?
  • Have passwords been changed on financial accounts.
  • Have there been lifestyle changes, including new purchases of large items?
  • Has your spouse’s income declined suddenly?
  • Have there been large transfers of money from one account to another or convoluted financial transactions?
  • Has your spouse all of a sudden borrowed money or incurred significant expenses?
  • Have large sums of money disappeared?
  • Has your spouse been gambling?
  • Has your spouse been taking a lot of “business trips?”
  • Have there been a lot of cash withdrawals?
  • Does your spouse all of a sudden have a lot of cash?

In these circumstances your attorney should seek the assistance of an expert who can assist with a thorough evaluation of the finances.
