Divorce-related valuations: dividing the value of a business interest between divorcing spouses.

  • Are you and your spouse contemplating a divorce (or have you already started that difficult process)?
  • Do either/both of you own an interest in a business- either an entire or fractional interest?
  • Do you live in a community property state?
  • Do you need to be educated on what the ramifications are for your business interest when you divorce?
  • Are you curious about how the different types of goodwill (personal vs. enterprise) figure into the entire equation?
  • Do you have questions about the validity of a previously performed valuation?
  • Are you in need of a professional to provide an objective, unbiased opinion on the value of the business?

If the answer to any/all of these questions is yes, it would be helpful for you and your spouse to understand how these issues might apply to your situation.

While the divorce process can be difficult, an integral part of that process is understanding the value of all business interests owned by the parties.
Please watch the video above for more information on how the value of business interests in a divorce might be determined; you can also find some articles of interest in our blog.
