Protecting Your Interests When Business Assets Are At Stake

When business owners and their spouses decide to divorce, dividing marital assets can become a complex undertaking. Although one partner may be recognized as the entity's president or owner, it often takes a joint effort to finance and operate a business. Florida statutes require that dividing business assets reflect these contributions and the business's increase in value over the course of the marriage.

Likewise, determining whether a portion of the business is marital property and which portion may be retained by the business owner alone can also take teamwork. Without the appropriate financial and legal background, you may be unable to protect your interests during property and asset negotiations.
