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 a 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.
At the Law Offices of Jeffrey M. Bloom, we handle divorce cases involving closely held businesses. If necessary, we work with a forensic accountant who can locate or verify assets and help determine the value of a company. We represent clients who own businesses in Bergen County, Hudson County, across New Jersey, and West New York.
