Valuation & Division of Business Assets in Orange County, CA
Spouses who have acquired or started their own business entity during a marriage are faced with a difficult task. They must come to some sort of agreement as the the value and the division of the entity and its assets — or make some sort of contractual and equitable agreement to equally compensate the other spouse. In many cases, both spouses had differing roles in building and operating the business which must be sorted out and negotiated for a proper and legal division of a marital business. It is often necessary to have both a valuation expert and real estate expert assist in the valuation and division of a business entity acquired during a marriage.

Determining Business Valuation
Many divorcing couples must determine what will happen to the business entities owned by one or both spouses. It can me messy, but need not be with the right guidance. Ed has a quarter century’s experience of negotiating settlements – many that were very creative so that each party to the divorce got what they wanted (but coming into the process were both sure they were going to get shafted). A little thinking outside the box of typical divorce settlements and common and equitable ground can be found blessing both spouses as they go their separate ways.
