Business Owner Valuation and Ownership Lawyer

Law Offices of Jeffrey M. Bloom | West New York

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.

Dividing a Business in Divorce

Attorney Jeffrey M. Bloom assists business owners in Hudson County, Bergen County and the entire region throughout the process of divorce. When a small-business owner is facing divorce, the following will need to be considered:

  • Determining how the business is structured (partnership, LLC, PLLC, etc.)
  • How the business was started (Was the business started before or during the marriage? How was the business acquired?)
  • The spouse’s involvement (Is the spouse an employee of the business?)
  • How the business will be run in the future
  • If a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement was drafted, we will look at the terms of the contract to see if business division was addressed.
