Wickedly Smart Women

Oct 4, 2023

In a divorce where there’s a lot of money on the line, people hire a forensic accountant to expose any hidden assets that should be considered in the settlement.

But what if you don’t have $10,000 to hire a forensic accountant? What can middle class women do to access information about their financial situation and secure the settlement they deserve in divorce?

Tracy Coenen is the Forensic Accountant behind Fraud Coach, a platform that helps women have better financial outcomes in divorce.

Tracy is also the creator of the Divorce Money Guide and author of Find Me the Money: Take Control, Uncover the Truth, and Win the Money You Deserve in Your Divorce.

On this episode of Wickedly Smart Women, Tracy joins Anjel to describe what a forensic accountant does and why she’s passionate about using her skills in the divorce space.

Tracy shares the top two ways people hide money in a marriage and explains how the Divorce Money Guide is designed to help you get the data you need for a fair settlement.

Listen in for Tracy’s insight on the cost of NOT investigating potential fraud in divorce and learn how to ask your spouse for information about your finances or access it on your own if they’re uncooperative!
