It is important to remember that property or business division in a divorce is final — in other words, once it’s done, it’s done. That is all the more reason to retain the firm that will get the valuation and division of your business done correctly the first time.
Business Valuation And Division
There are several aspects that must be considered when attempting to divide a business in divorce, including:
- Did you own the business before the marriage? If not, then how was the business ownership acquired?
- Did you acquire the business ownership while married?
- Are the business and other marital assets co-mingled?
