Complex Business Property Valuation and Division

Divorcing spouses who own and operate a business often find that property settlement is the most challenging dispute to overcome. Even if the business was already owned by one spouse prior to marriage, marital assets are very often used to support its growth and successful operation over the years. In many cases, one spouse remained out of the workforce to support the family or help operate the business on a part-time basis. The situation is made even more complicated when business partners and shareholder investors have a stake in the outcome.

Business valuation and equitable distribution of assets are among the most complex areas of California community property law in divorce. If you own a business or professional practice in Sacramento County, in Placer County or anywhere in Central or Northern California, you need a lawyer who understands the process and strategies to protect your financial interests.
