CPAs are engaged in assisting attorneys in alimony and child support negotiations and calculations. They locate and value marital property, provide expert witness testimony, and calculate tax issues related to the division of property and on-going support payments. CPAs can assist in fact finding, provide financial consulting or be a business advisor to the attorney(s) or parties to the family law action. The Family Law resource section provides important information regarding the divorce process, factors to consider in accepting the engagement, and the division of marital or community property. CPAs can also find tools and aids with a focus on support, valuation and taxation issues in family law while performing research and gathering critical information.
