Division of Business Assets in a California Divorce

Fair and accurate valuation of marital property is a crucial aspect of property division. This is never so true as when considering the value of a business partnership, medical practice, family owned business or any other business. To aid in the valuation process, we routinely work with accountants, business valuation professionals and other experts who help us place accurate values on items such as:

  • Inventory
  • Real estate
  • Business good will
  • Trade secrets
  • Appreciation of property

After determining the value of each party’s ownership interest, considered to be community property under California divorce law, the next step is to divide it between the spouses. In many cases, one spouse wishes to continue operating the business, making a lawyer who can think creatively and reach a suitable property settlement of great value. At the Bacinett Law Offices, we work to secure property division arrangements that meet our clients’ needs, whether through negotiation, mediation or at trial.
