About Business Asset Division
Even if you are the spouse of a business owner but not a co-owner, you, too, have a vested interest in their business assets. If we represent you, we will stand strong on your behalf to ensure that property division in your divorce accounts for all your direct or indirect contributions to the business’s success.
As we help you navigate your Massachusetts divorce involving business assets, we will closely monitor factors including the following:
- Fluctuations in the value of the business or the interests that you or your spouse have in one or more businesses
- The date that business valuation will be determined – possibly, the date of your divorce trial, the date you separated or the date your marital relationship effectively ended – and stock values for the business on that date
- Capital gains, goodwill, taxation issues and the business’s general growth rate
- The selection of experts who will assist with the valuation, including the chief financial officer, a certified public accountant, the business owner involved in the divorce (you, spouse or both), appraisers and others
- The potential for a judge to use their discretion regarding any uncertainties
If your case goes to trial and we find any of the proceedings questionable, your attorney from Barach Law Group LLC will raise objections to preserve your right to appeal.
