Some Florida couples run a business together during their marriages. In the event of a divorce, each party is entitled to a portion of the company's assets. This can make dividing property in a divorce challenging.
Often, it is necessary to have a third party come in and conduct a valuation of the business from the date the couple was married to a date certain. Determining the end date for such an analysis could be the first hurdle. Many times, that date is the date the couple separated. Once that date is established, several factors are used to determine how much the business has grown during the marriage.
