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 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.
