First of all, we might get a private investigator involved to look into what bank accounts or other asset accounts the other spouse has. Certainly, we will get a forensic accountant involved if we have multiple bank accounts and we see transactions that go between bank accounts and then the other side doesn’t produce the documents that correspond with those transfers. We do discovery which, of course, is where the other side produces documents and also answers questions about what assets are involved. And of course, the courts usually require an inventory and appraisement to be filled out by both spouses and be filed with the court.
