Bergen County High Net Worth Divorce Attorney
In the state of New Jersey, marital property must be divided equitably upon divorce. An "equitable division" does not mean assets and property are divided 50-50; rather, the court, taking into consideration the earning potential of both parties, their level of education, work experience, and other factors, will apportion marital assets in way it believes is "equitable." When there are substantial assets involved or one or both spouses owns a closely held business, what is equitable and what assets are considered marital property can be a complicated and delicate matter.

Business Valuations and High Net Worth Divorce
The valuation of a business can be complicated by a number of factors. First, there is a difference between the standard value of a business and the promise of value. "Standard value" refers to the set of conditions under which a business is valued while the "premise of value" refers to a set of assumptions regarding where the value of a business rests.
Here, market conditions, the use of hypothetical conditions, and assumptions about where the real value of a business lies can lead to disputes about the value of business assets for the purposes of the division of marital property. If a business valuation isn't challenged or carefully reviewed, it could skew the results of the division of marital assets.
