Business Ownership and Divorce 

Dear Friends,

Going through a divorce when significant assets are at stake can be overwhelming and confusing. How can things be divided if you're a partner in a small business? What if you're the stay-at-home spouse of a business owner? How can jointly owned properties be fairly split? You want to make sure you're getting a fair division of what the two of you built during your marriage.

These are all questions that our experienced team handles often. Whether you've built a business or enabled your spouse to build a business, you're entitled to an equitable division of the value. Our firm has significant experience using forensic accountants and business valuation experts to learn the real value of a business and discover hidden assets, accounts, cryptocurrency, and more. 

Both partners contribute to a marriage, and you deserve your fair share.
