What Happens to My Business During a Divorce?

No matter where you are at professionally, we have the skills and legal resources to protect your personal and financial interests. Whether you are a doctor, attorney, entrepreneur, real estate agent or small-business owner, or are married to a high net worth business professional, we are here to help you start the next chapter of your life.

Unlike child support, property division is not based on a mathematical formula. Instead, many factors can come into play when determining how to handle your business assets and liabilities as part of your divorce. As a starting point, we can consult business valuation experts to understand the value of your family business, closely held business or professional practice. Several factors will be taken into account, including:

  • Growth opportunities within your industry
  • Value of your proprietary information
  • Economic factors
  • History and type of business you own

Once we understand the value of your business, this may inform the deal you may want to strike with your spouse. You may choose to sell the business and divide the proceeds between you two. In other cases, we have negotiated an arrangement to buy out the other spouse or continue operating the business together.

We can also consult forensic accountants to understand how your business property was handled during your marriage. Property division can be highly complicated when a business is involved. We have the skills, experience and legal resources to guide you through the process of protecting your financial interests.
