Going through a divorce is a complicated process. It becomes even more difficult if the end of your marriage came as a surprise. Even though it is shocking, you should make sure that you take a few minutes to stop and think about what is going on.
Whether your divorce is simple or complex, the process is always complicated. It becomes even more so when there is a closely held business involved. Since you and your wife have decided to divorce, an experienced business appraiser will have to value your company.
For parents with children, the kids become the main focus of the divorce process. This can even impact property division. Who gets the house, for example, may be whoever is going to have physical custody of the kids.
