What advice would you give to the financially inexperienced spouse of a business owner or executive?

The work that would be required of the professionals representing the non-owner spouse is a little bit different than those representing the owner spouse. Remember, when you are representing the person that runs the business, you are in control and you have all of the information that exists. When you represent the non-titled spouse, you have to be on high alert with regard to the review of everything that you receive or do not receive, because it is up to you as the attorney and the forensic accountant to be sure that you can sit down with the non-sophisticated spouse and tell them with certainty that you are confident that the assets that you have discovered and that the cash flow that you are recommending be utilized for alimony and child support purposes is accurate to the best of your ability based on the facts in that case.
