New Jersey Business Valuation Divorce Attorneys
Does your family's net worth come in part or in whole from a family-owned business? Are you considering divorce? Business valuation in the context of divorce proceedings is extremely complex. Whether or not you and your spouse share ownership, it is extremely critical to seek early legal and financial advice — to protect your own financial future as well as the future of the business.

Valuation of a Business as Part of the Divorce Process
When a marriage ends, all marital property must be divided equitably between the husband and wife. Marital property may include a family-owned business — whether the spouses are joint owners or whether only one spouse has an ownership interest in the business.
Questions that must be answered — with assistance from forensic accountants and business valuation experts — include:
- Did the business start during the course of the marriage?
- Did the non-owner contribute in any way to the business? Or, did the non-owner spouse contribute to the family and the marriage in a way that allowed the owner-spouse to ultimately succeed in the business?
- Will the business be sold or will one spouse buy out the other?
- Who should bear responsibility for any present or future tax liabilities associated with the business?
