Handling divorce proceedings for Florida business owners and their spouses can often come with complications of division of earnings and assets, above and beyond what they might find in average divorce cases. Florida courts will look for a means of “equitable distribution” of the marital property. “Equitable,” it is important to note, is not the same as “equal” and there is a great deal of room on both sides to argue what might constitute equitable in your divorce case.

Things for Business Owners to Consider When Divorcing
If you or your spouse own a professional practice or business and you are contemplating divorce in Delray Beach, the following questions may arise:
- What is that business really worth?
- How much income does it really generate?
- What is the value of a spouse’s contribution?
- What is the value of personal or business goodwill?
- How much of the business belongs to the marriage, and how much of it is non-marital property?
- Are assets or income being “hidden” in the business?
- Are there steps I should take to protect myself before filing?
Answering these questions strategically and being able to show evidence of these answers in court if necessary is essential to achieving a positive outcome in your divorce case.
