Business Valuations and Asset Division Law in Ohio
With Collaborative Law, You and Your Spouse Decide on Your Solutions
In both litigation and Collaborative Law, couples must answer key questions when dividing a business. How much is the business worth? Should it be divided, or would another asset allocation option make more sense? Who can make an accurate and final decision regarding the full value of the business in question? If my business is my source of income, will I have to divide the business, and also pay alimony?
The difference between litigation and Collaborative Law lies in how the valuation question or dispute is approached. With litigation, the first step is to draw up sides and prepare for a long and expensive fight. In the Collaborative Process, systematic steps are taken to reduce fear, distrust and anger. When these feelings are minimized, couples are invariably surprised to learn that, by working together, they can achieve a result which makes sense, preserves assets and satisfies everyone’s needs as much as possible. And, with the Collaborative Process, you and your spouse decide the results of your case, not a judge. You will collaborate with mutually retained experts to handle any needed business valuations.
