If you and / or your spouse own a closely held business business or a professional practice, then business division could play a significant role in your divorce case. This can be especially confusing in situations where one spouse started a business before the marriage, but then the other spouse worked on or contributed to the business over the course of the marriage. We understand the sensitive and complicated nature of these types of issues and can help.
Remember, California is a community property state. This means that property acquired over the course of the marriage is subject to equal division in a California divorce. In California, this results in a division of equal assets in total, as opposed to equal division of each individual asset. This means that one spouse could in theory be awarded the family home, retirement assets, deferred compensation or other assets while the other spouse received the family business. The key thing is that the total valuation of the divided assets be equal.
One challenging aspect of business division is valuing a business and each party's interest in that business.
