Establishing Business Value In Divorce

An experienced lawyer understands these nuanced cases

There are many stressful and time-consuming tasks that must take place at the time of a divorce, and a business valuation is one of the most important. If you're involved in a divorce, or know you will be soon, and either you or your spouse own a business, it's very important to work with an experienced Mesa divorce attorney who understands business valuation.

A business valuation consists of establishing an accurate value of any and all businesses owned or partially owned by either spouse involved in the divorce. Without this valuation, the distribution of the assets of the business can be left up to the courts. This is an important part of property division, and it's important to do it right. That's why you need the experienced lawyers at Brown, Naegle, Crider & Jensen LLC on your side.

Multiple factors can affect business valuation and resolution

A proper business valuation will be able to show if a business was created before, during or after the marriage, if it should be considered marital property, and how it could potentially be divided equally. Options to reasonably divide the value of a business may include indemnification or a lump sum trade. Some divorcing couples may even be able to continue to share ownership of a business after their marriage has been dissolved, depending on the relationship and the nature of the business.

Attorney Brad Crider has extensive experience in successful divorce proceedings that include business valuations. Brad's business background gives his clients a significant advantage when it comes to fairly valuing and dividing business interests. Moreover, Brad is joined on these cases by attorneys Scott Jensen and Shad Brown, who contribute their business and tax law expertise and help to create fair and favorable solutions.
