If there is no Premarital Agreement in California Regarding Businesses

Where any of these businesses exist and there is no Premarital Agreement, the business needs to be valued.  That includes and is not limited to: accounting for inventory, accounts receivable, fixtures, leases and the building(s), if owned.  These matters can be complex and involve other business professionals, including business appraisers and forensic accountants.  Link has the experience and sophisticated knowledge required to effectively cross-examine the other side’s experts in litigation if no compromise can be made.

If the business interest was owned prior to marriage, part of the value of the business is separate property, and the rest is community property. Link has years of experience litigating this issue and identifying the tax consequences that arise.
