Computer Forensic Investigation: How It
Can Help With Your Divorce
Computer forensic investigation is to gather electronically stored
information in a scientific practice method and put it in a format useful to a divorce case. Computer forensic
analysis is often useful in matters that, on the surface, seem unrelated to computers. In some cases, personal
information may have been stored on a computer. Computer forensic investigator can help pinpoint the
exact information that is sought, often finding or reconstructing data thought to be intentionally or accidentally
deleted or destroyed.
Spousal disputes, particularly divorce situations, frequently involve allegations of
misappropriation of funds. Spouses generally understand the basics of the family finances, but it is often the
husband who assumes the role as the head of the family financial affairs. It is not uncommon in the divorce process
that investments, bank and brokerage accounts and other assets are “discovered” that were unknown to a participant.
Spouses may also disagree about their shared lifestyle which is relevant when your divorce attorney needs to
determine alimony. When you file for divorce, your lawyer may also request that you hire a forensic
accountant to prepare your case and ensure that your divorce is based upon full disclosure of assets,
liabilities and income.
Computer forensic investigators can identify the truth by examining the
computer's hard drive and see what websites; e-mails, chat logs and other pieces of useful information are
available to help you. The investigator use tools to extract deleted information in a computer hardrive, as well as
any other types of electronic digital devices, such as: laptop, cell phone, ipod, fax machine, etc. They can draw
on an array of methods for discovering information that resides in a computer system or recovering deleted or
hidden files, restore formatted encrypted or damaged file information. Once the information is collected and
you have had time to go over the data, you will then have the evidence you need to either believe that your
relationship is still solid and there isn't any lying and cheating occurring.
