Divorce For Business Owners And Executives
Business owners, executives and other highly compensated professionals must address property division issues that individual contributing professionals, and even mid-level managers do not need to address in divorce. In the case of an individual business practice, one must delineate between accounts receivable, office assets and compensation; it is not possible to value a reputation. In the case of executives, they may have stock or performance options that are immensely difficult to value and divide.
