Get Your Fair Share Of The Business

If you and your spouse own substantial assets, determining how to split them up can get complicated. California is a community property state, which means that marital property generally gets divided 50-50 between the spouses. But before you can do that, you must know exactly how much your assets are worth.

For example, a business co-owned by you and your spouse could be one of the most valuable items to be subject to division. Before you can figure out what to do with a business, you must know its cash value. To help with this, we hire experts to conduct a business valuation, which will determine your family business's current value. Once you know what the business is worth, you will know how to proceed toward a fair and accurate division of assets.
