Frisco Lawyers Handling Divorce for Business Owners
Ensuring a Fair Property Division Process
Divorces that involve significant property are rarely straightforward. When a business is part of a couple's assets, it is often in both parties’ best interests 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 separate property.
Our attorneys at Pfister Family Law have handled numerous divorce cases, including divorce for business owners in Frisco. John J. Pfister, Jr. is Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and has over 27 years of legal experience.
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. 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.
Assets must be distributed fairly and equitably. 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.
Retaining an experienced family law attorney can ensure that all assets are inventoried and valued. At Pfister Family Law, we work with established experts to value businesses and execute forensic accounting when necessary.
