Skillful Handling Of The Complex Issues Surrounding Business Valuation And Division

Many high net worth divorce proceedings involve serious disputes regarding the division of marital property. Often, those disputes concern the future of a business that the spouses own together or individually. Unless there was a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement to the contrary, each spouse likely has a claim to some share of the business in the event of a divorce.

Determining what portion of the business is subject to division and what that portion of the business is worth can be an extremely complex process. At Contreras Law Firm in San Diego, our attorneys have extensive experience representing clients in all aspects of high net worth divorce and complex property division for California business owners.
