Assisting With Divorce For Business Owners

Few divorces that involve significant property are straightforward. When a business is part of a couple's assets it is often in the best interest of both parties to hire professionals to ensure that community property and separate property are accurately distinguished. This is because in Texas community property is treated differently than personal, or separate, property.

Decades Of Divorce And Business Divorce Experience

The attorneys at the Frisco law firm of Pfister & Associates have decades of experience with divorce, including divorce for business owners and business valuation. Attorney John J. Pfister, Jr. is Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization with over 25 years of legal experience. Attorney Charity Borserine is also experienced family lawyer.

Dividing The Business Equitably

When a couple owns a business it can be difficult to discern the best way to divide ownership. Even when the business was owned before marriage, there may still be claims that can be asserted in the divorce for undistributed income. The variable nature of ownership can be difficult to characterize without outside help. This is why we work with experts in business valuation: to assure all parties that an accurate appraisal is made.

It is important that there is a fair and equitable distribution of assets.If, however, one spouse hides assets or "cooks the books," the other spouse may have a difficult time receiving what is — under the law — rightfully his or hers.

Working with an experienced family law attorney can ensure that all assets are inventoried and valued. At Pfister & Associates, we work with established experts to value businesses and execute forensic accounting when necessary.
