Dividing Business Interests in Divorce Proceedings

1.5 hours MCLE Credit. Specialization: Family Law

 

 

Tracing business interests into and through marriage can be a tricky proposition. Partners may have joined and left, additional investments might have been made, and the entire purpose of the business might have shifted over time. Learn where to start and how to divide a business in divorce: how to characterize the interests, how to apportion community and separate portions, and how to follow through with the division of any community property interest. Certified Family Law Specialists Peter M. Walzer and Jennifer M. Riemer will cover the basics and beyond, and discuss how recent case law developments should affect your approach.

Program Highlights:

  • Characterizing of business interests
  • What might constitute a transmutation in the context of a business interest
  • Apportionment methods: Van Camp, Pereira, hybrid, or something else?
  • What to look for in a business valuation
  • Tips for settling and litigating business interest division issues

This is an intermediate level program. Some family law experience is assumed.
