Is a Business Separate Property or Marital Property?

We understand that you have many concerns regarding the fair division of property, particularly when you own a business. There are many types of businesses ― from family businesses to medical practices to other types of professional practices ― that will require business valuation.

After 40 years of practice handling divorce in Pennsylvania, Aattorney Lawrence Pauker collaborates with business valuation experts to value, quantify and characterize the business and each party's role in the business. In some circumstances, a business that was solely part of one spouse's assets prior to the marriage can remain separate property. The appreciated value of the business will be subjected to property division. In other circumstances, the business may be deemed marital property, particularly if one spouse had a large part in increasing the business value.

The Tax Implications of a High-Asset Divorce

Decisions made during a divorce affect taxes. Our law firm is mindful of the tax consequences that come with property division, child support, alimony and other financial factors. We strive for the most cost-effective decisions that preserve your assets.
