Business division in divorce in Newport Beach

Business Division


Another aspect of asset division during a complicated divorce in Orange County is the division of a business that was acquired during the marriage. In a business division dispute, the Orange County family law courts consider factors such as contribution by each party towards the maintenance, operation and purchase of the business, as well as the skill level of each spouse to operate the business to determine how the business should be divided.


Business division during divorce can be complicated since each spouse will contributed to their fair share towards the growth, success, or failure of the business, and wants an equitable right to reimbursement and division of the business at divorce.
