As a dedicated Saratoga Divorce Lawyer, I am often asked how a client can get their fair share of their spouse’s business when going through a divorce.
- The proper way to determine the value of a business owned by either party is to retain an expert to calculate its value.
- Once the business is valued, the parties or the court will determine the non-titled spouse’s share.
- The court will consider many factors in determining the non-titled spouse’s share, which can range from 20% to 50%.
- A specific mandate will set forth how the non-titled spouse is paid and, if payment is to be made over time, it may include an interest component.
