Protecting Your Interests When Dividing Businesses And Other Complex Property

Property division, determining a just and equitable distribution of marital assets and liabilities, is often one of the most contested areas of divorce. Questions of fairness and equity are often colored by the emotion of divorce.

An already complicated process, property division becomes more so when high-value, complex assets are involved. One of the most complex assets a couple may possess is a closely held or family-owned business. Meinerts Law Office, P.A., is well-versed in handling cases with complex assets, including businesses.
