#2408 Cryptocurrency Part One: How to Find It/Track It in Divorce Litigation

Presented on September 9, 2021

1.0 CLE credit: Skills (appropriate for experienced attorneys only)

While spouses hiding assets from divorce court is nothing new, cryptocurrencies are changing the game. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies can be purchased for cash, held electronically without the help of a third party, and transferred nearly anonymously. This course will  provide practical tips on how attorneys and their clients can gather more information on the spouse’s transactions.

In this session, forensic accountant Mark DiMichael and divorce attorney Vanessa Gabriele, Esq., will provide attorneys with a basic understanding of cryptocurrency, how it works, how it is held by an owner, and divorce legal issues.
