How are businesses valued in divorce?
When considering a business when negotiating property division, the business is valued based on its cash flow, total assets, liabilities and investments. When necessary, we will work with a forensic accountant or valuation experts to help determine the future value and how the business can be divided.
Do I need a forensic accountant for my divorce?
If you share a business with your spouse, working with a forensic accountant as well as an attorney can help ensure that the division is equitable and fair. We will help you through every step of this process.
How are assets split in New York State?
New York divides marital assets equitably. However, this does not mean a fair 50/50 split. The goal of every property division is to place both spouses on even footing. This may mean that one party gets the main family home and the other gets other real estate or assets.
