AICPA Family Law Conference


The AICPA's Family Law Conference aims to builds skills for CPAs who offer guidance in divorce proceedings.

Divorces can be an emotional minefield, so CPAs and financial advisors who play a role in the division of marital assets need special skills. A just-the-facts demeanor, experience in business valuation and tax law, and a bloodhound-like ability to track down hidden wealth can go a long way toward a successful career.

Where can practitioners hone these skills? The AICPA Family Law Conference is a great place to start. Some 20 sessions offer ample opportunity to learn from the best in the business. Topics include:

• Tips for testifying in legal proceedings
• The role of forensic accountants in the assessment of spousal support and asset division
• How to uncover a spouse’s hidden assets and income
• Ethical guidelines for the family law practitioner
• Keys to effective case management

• Marketing your practice to lawyers

Keynote speaker Gerald J. Lavelle, a family court judge in New Mexico, will discuss how financial experts can aid in the successful resolution of divorce cases.

Early bird registration is available until April 9. AICPA members are eligible for discounts, and members of the AICPA’s Forensic and Valuation Services Section can save an additional $100.

The conference will be held May 8-10 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, For more information, click here.
