Dear Attorneys,

I am currently in the midst of what I believe to be a messy divorce. After all the back and forth, now my attorney wants me to meet with an accountant. I don’t get it – I already hired her to be my lawyer and represent me, why is she not able to help me figure out my finances?

Very Truly Yours,



Dear Taxed,

We definitely understand your frustration, especially with a high-tension divorce. However, our firm would also likely refer you to an accountant. Typically, attorneys do have a good grasp on your financial situation, however they are not as well versed as an accountant would be on different tax implications, what the outcome would be if you filed your return separately, etc.

If you are self-employed, calculating your true average income can also be very complicated. In order to ensure that your financial affidavit is as accurate as possible, it is usually the best option to have your accountant that handles your business returns take a look and help you fill that out.

With 20 years of combined experience, Attorneys Kristen Wolf & Shari-Lynn Cuomo Shore will thoroughly review all financial documentation, and refer you to accountants, financial advisors, or other consulting professionals as necessary. Call us today, and let us make your divorce easier, not harder.
