Specializing in divorce litigation, mediation, and collaborative law

Welcome to Susan Carlisle, CPA. We understand that resolving the financial issues in a divorce can be complicated and overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be hell on earth.

It’s advantageous to enlist advisors who work toward agreement instead of dragging your family through the time-consuming, aggravating, and costly court system. People who once cared for each other, and perhaps raised children together, may find it beneficial to negotiate for the worthwhile goal of arriving at an equitable settlement.

Even if you or your spouse have already started down the road to expensive litigation, we can guide you in finding ways to mitigate the damage and to keep the hostility to a minimum.

Here are some of the things we, as litigation, mediation, and collaborative law CPA experts, can do to help.

We offer confidential financial services to individuals and couples, at reasonable rates, whether they are in mediation, collaborative law or litigation. We educate clients with regard to their family’s financial needs and the parties’ ability to pay child support, alimony and the fair division of separate and community property.

As forensic accountants, we review tax returns, QuickBooks records and financial statements to determine the business owner’s income available for support and perquisites.

We offer tracing of separate and community property, business valuations and Moore-Marsden calculations, as well as consulting regarding the tax ramifications of various options for dividing community property.

We work with attorneys and mediators to settle all financial issues amicably as jointly retained accountants or 730 (court witness) experts.  If necessary, we are available to testify if you are unable to negotiate an equitable agreement.
