Types of fraudulent behaviour in divorce cases


We frequently identify shortcomings in the disclosures of parties in divorce cases. This is more prevalent in situations where one party has a business and therefore the opportunity to manipulate income and assets. As certified fraud examiners,as well as chartered accountants, we are used to recognising potential misfeasance. Here are some examples:

  • underreporting income
  • diverting sales to undisclosed companies
  • overpaying creditors
  • padding the payroll
  • transferring assets to offshore accounts
  • purchasing expensive items with undeclared cash income
