Stuart Slotnick, shareholder in the firm's Litigation section, comments on an innocent spouse's options if their spouse commits a financial crime in MarketWatch's article "Meet the Wives Whose Husbands Committed White-Collar Financial Crimes."n

...an innocent spouse can argue that she has a right to keep any accounts that weren’t connected to the financial fraud, even if they signed the tax returns, says Stuart Slotnick, a Pittsburgh-based attorney who specializes in divorce and matrimonial law.

“It basically says that you’re not responsible for the penalties that are associated with filing a false tax return because you were an innocent spouse,” he adds.
