There is a lot to navigate during the initial phases of the divorce process. It all starts with discovery; a process you and your attorney will approach together. During this episode, we discuss the details of the formal discovery process and the relative tools your attorney may choose to utilize to get the information you need. 

We talk about the parameters around open disclosure, resolving discovery disputes, and why definitions are important. We also touch on what happens when you are not transparent during the process, how the role of a business evaluator differs from a forensic accountant, and more.
