Divorce rates have been rising due to certain problems like incompatibility between couples, infidelity, lack of trust and understanding, and financial pressures. Financial consultants who want to branch into the area of matrimonial litigation need to understand and perform unique analyses specific to matrimonial disputes.
In these specialty Webinars, attendees will learn valuation, tax, and forensic accounting issues that are unique to matrimonial engagements and how to get started, including developing their work plan, documenting their analysis, and writing reports. Attendees will learn how to provide analysis related to income available for support/maintenance, lifestyle of the parties or children, under-reported income, and financial issues in high net-worth cases. Attendees will also be introduced to a number of tools and practical applications that can be used to ascertain income and assets.
These Webinars will also cover the application of valuation concepts and tax considerations in family law matters; valuation issues common to divorce litigation, including valuation methods, standards of value, stock options, retirement assets, and goodwill; tax concepts germane to family law; and how to avoid common mistakes.
