Divorce and Matrimonial Disputes

When couples part ways, they often require assistance in assessing the value of material assets, analyzing financial records, and determining the equitable division of property. A forensic investigation delves into financial records and helps to ensure an equitable distribution. 


In bankruptcy cases, forensic accounting firms in El Paso examine financial records, evaluate financial health, and identify assets that might be liquidated. Investigations can vary in duration, depending on the complexity of the case. Marcus says some investigations can be resolved in a few weeks, while others can take several months or even longer, especially if litigation is involved. In bankruptcy court, the firm will provide expert testimony that assists creditors, debtors, and the court in making informed decisions throughout the process.

Shareholder Disputes

Shareholder disputes can erupt due to disagreements over company operations, financial matters, or the valuation of shares. The forensic accountant prepares opinions regarding shared values and financial reports to help parties reach equitable resolutions and avoid protracted, costly litigation.
