Many Cranberry Township residents have woken up one day and realized that a relationship is over. For married couples, divorce may be the only legitimate option at this point. An equitable division of assets can be achieved for both parties involved in the property division process.

An equitable division does not necessarily mean a 50-50 division of assets. It means a property division solution that is fair and reasonable for both parties, depending on the circumstances. Computer forensics can help to dig into people's finances and personal lives to help determine just what equitable may mean. Computer forensic investigators are professionals at examining computer histories and digital records to acquire evidence in search of equitable division of assets.

Forensic specialists can dig not only into financial records, but also into a person's character and personal life. They can find evidence of negative behaviors like gambling, alcoholism or even cheating. This could easily impact of the outcome of an equitable asset division, it could determine what equitable means in this situation. On the flip side, it could also prove evidence of responsible behavior that can be taken into account.

They can help determine the activities of a person as well as financial decision during the course of a marriage. Social media, bank accounts, and work emails are all avenues to be accessed by forensic specialists. There are potentially many more, based on a person's digital footprint.
