Business Owners Going Through Divorce

We Can Help with Business Valuation
You will need business valuation before getting divorced since you need to know exactly how much it is worth prior to dividing it. Even if you plan to keep it all through negotiation, you will need to find out what it is worth so that you can give your spouse the equivalent in other assets.
Perhaps the valuation process is already complete, but you do not agree with the results. If so, we can help. Whether you simply think the business is worth more, or have another issue with the process, we can assist you until you are satisfied with the outcome.
One example of a common problem is that the business owner does not think the spouse is entitled to this asset, and should therefore be given very little of it. Another possibility is that the business owner believes it should mostly be categorized as an asset to be divided, not an income stream, or perhaps it's the other way around.
Either way, we know how to ensure your business is divided fairly, taking both your preferences and divorce rules into consideration. We can talk to experts who perform business valuation frequently so that your company is treated properly during divorce.
