Business Valuation and Unique Income Situations
Having a business held by one of the spouses can present certain challenges. Ascertaining the proper value of a business interest can be complicated, and can form the basis for extensive litigation in many cases. Our firm is experienced in representing parties through business valuations, guiding them through employing forensic accountants and other outside experts to help determine the true value of property such as business interests, stock, and real estate.
In other situations, a spouse may have multiple or unique sources of income from various investments, business transactions, or commissions, which may affect valuation of the business. Our firm is experienced in determining the true value of a marital estate, no matter how complicated the situation.
Our firm will also evaluate the following property and/or assets:
• Stock options
• Retirement accounts and investments
