Frequently Asked Questions

  • When a couple divorces and a family-owned business is involved, the division of the business can go in one of several directions, and any number of issues may be disputed. For instance:

    • A judge may order that the business be divided equally.
    • A dispute may arise regarding the valuation of the business.
    • A spouse may attempt to obtain part ownership in the business.

    The result of negotiations or litigation can greatly affect the assets of either party after the divorce is finalized. If you are divorcing and wish to protect your interests in a family-owned business, it is essential that you obtain qualified, knowledgeable and aggressive legal help.

    At the Lewisville, Texas, North Texas Family Lawyers, we have represented spouses’ interests in businesses for decades. We draw on our vast experience and work with our certified divorce financial planning expert to maximize clients’ assets during the division of complex property. We can work effectively to maximize or minimize a cash pay out for a business, fight for your exclusive ownership of a business or otherwise protect your interests.

    Was your business yours exclusively before your marriage? Did your spouse make only minor contributions to your business, or did you contribute heavily toward your spouse’s business?

    We have resolved cases in which businesses have been declared the sole possession of one spouse, and we have succeeded in limiting a spouse’s payout to just the appreciated value of the business during the length of the marriage. We have worked with countless business owners and owners of professional practices and can work effectively to protect your interests. For more information, please contact a Lewisville business valuation lawyer at our firm.

  • Professional practices are subject to ownership division upon divorce in many instances. If you have worked hard to build a thriving practice, who can help ensure that the practice’s value won’t be inflated when property is allocated during divorce? And if your spouse owns a professional practice, which law firm has the experience and resources to ensure your interests are protected and your ownership share is maximized?

    The family law and property division lawyers of North Texas Family Lawyers have handled hundreds of divorce cases involving the valuation of professional practices and the division of high-value property. We assist both licensed professionals and spouses in accurately appraising fair values for professional practices and licenses, and in fairly dividing marital property.

    At North Texas Family Lawyers, we draw on decades of combined years of legal experience to answer key questions when determining the value of professional practices, including:

    • What factors contributed to the success of the practice?
    • Has the business appreciated?
    • What are the practice’s tax obligations and debts?
    • What is the value of the business’s real estate property and intellectual property?

    Our extensive experience is complemented by input from our certified divorce financial planning expert, who was recently listed as “One of the Best Financial Planners in Dallas” and who has numerous credentials and licensures related to divorce and property division law. For more information, please contact our firm.

  • What Is the Value of Your Practice? How Do You Put a Value on a Career?

    The valuation of professional practices is a critical part of your divorce. Without effective legal representation, professional practice owners may lose a significant portion of their business, and spouses of business owners may not receive their fair share.
