Business Valuation in Divorce

"Not every divorce case warrants a full valuation at the outset, especially if the parties are inclined to find areas of compromise and agreement, rather than resistance and mistrust. Further, it goes without saying that some businesses are simply more complex than others, which may require a full evaluation. The decision on how to proceed is made on a case-by-case basis, depending on a variety of factors, including the parties' interest in a more efficient closure than the judicial system can provide."
