Irreconcilable differences is one of the many reasons people file for divorce. While the standard definition means that no party is at fault, this is not always the case, and difficulties may arise when trying to define who owns what.

This is where forensic accounting comes in, providing a service for those in the midst of divorce proceedings having problems agreeing upon a settlement. Trying to discover the true value of both parties’ assets requires a sensitive approach so not to exacerbate the situation further.
