Family Law: Forensic Accounting Support & Lifestyle Analysis

  

NAV's multidisciplinary expertise provides leading family law forensic accounting advisory. We are recognized state fiduciaries in both accounting and valuation. For example, NAV experts are fiduciaries in both accounting and valuation within eight counties in New York State. Accordingly, we are already vetted by the legal system, and this legal acceptance may serve to satisfy the need for a third-party matrimonial expert in cases seeking mediation or an expeditious settlement. 

We advise and assist attorneys in matrimonial litigation cases by providing a full spectrum of economic, forensic accounting, and valuation services. In additional, we understand the inherent tension in matrimonial disputes. We tackle both individual and commercial disputes with an egoless and tireless work ethic.

In the end, our ability to communicate effectively, both in and out of the courtroom, is a leading driver of our cross-functional value proposition for matrimonial litigation support.

 

How We Assist Clients

 

Sample forensic accounting services for matrimonial matters entail:

 

  • Alimony and child support capacity analysis
  • Analysis of preliminary valuation results and expert report delivery
  • Arm's-length salary benchmarking analysis to derive projected earnings
  • Bill-paying capacity analysis
  • Critique and rebuttal of competing expert reports
  • Deposition testimony
  • Detailed written reports or summary rebuttal reports
  • Digging for hidden assets such as offshore accounts, trusts, and real property
  • Financial modelling of key variables
  • Forensic statistical modelling
  • Lifestyle analysis of both parties
  • Lifestyle needs of dependents and children
  • Negotiation assistance
  • Valuation of real property, business interests, and other personal holdings

 

In addition, forensic accounting procedures encompass tracing, vouching, record reconciliation, and e-Discovery. We advise clients in all stages of in-court and out-of-court procedure, and we take pride in our effective and concise communication.

How We Are Transparent

 

We perform our services on a flat-fee or hourly basis with leading attorneys, alternative investment funds, CFOs, CPAs, and other C-suite corporate executives. We strongly feel engagement scope and fee ranges should be communicated effectively and efficiently.

We accordingly serve clients in stages, and we encourage clients to take a methodical, calculated approach to deciding which professional offerings are necessary or optional. 

Our first service stage is dubbed the NAV Situation Scan (TM). The Situation Scan helps both our clients and our teams diagnose the services necessary for fulfilment of client objectives. We then communicate the results of the Situation Scan to derive a suggested road-map. The NAV team next proposes a time frame for delivery of service milestones. We are inherently flexible, and our Situation Scans outline a proposed plan of action and not a mandatory obligation. We have found clients cherish this "ramp-up or ramp-down" flexibility that can be implemented at any time.
