Determining the value of a business can be a major obstacle to overcome in arriving at an asset division settlement in a divorce. At our Salt Lake City family law firm, we regularly handle cases that involve complex assets such as businesses. Whether your business is a professional practice or a retail establishment, you most likely will need expert appraisal of its value.
Many of our clients who have business valuation concerns are preparing to exit long-term marriages. When a business has been in operation during a marriage, it can be difficult to determine how a spouse’s nonmarital contribution will figure into any equation. This and other complex issues related to business valuations underscore the importance of working with an experienced family law attorney.
Here To Help You Make Informed Decisions About Investment Division
We regularly work together with professional appraisers to help our clients obtain accurate business valuations. The appraisers whom we hire know full well how easy it is for the “other side” to seek to deflate income or otherwise distort the value of business assets. We are prepared to stand up for your rights, beginning with a correct business valuation effort.
Utah Child Custody Lawyer
The determination of child custody in a divorce or separation will have a significant and long-lasting impact on you and your children. Child custody is typically the most emotional aspect of a divorce, and the task of determining child custody and visitation can be very complex.
Protecting The Best Interests Of The Child
In determining child custody matters, the law places the best interests of the child above all other considerations. However, parents do not always agree on what is in the best interests of the child. Certain issues may make custody complex. If you are getting divorced or separated and your ex is requesting more access than you feel is in the child’s best interests, it is very important to consult with an experienced child custody lawyer.
Our knowledge of Utah child custody laws allows us to facilitate the development of the required child custody and parenting plan in an effective and efficient manner. We can also assist you with modifications to child custody orders should the need arise.
If you are engaged in a child custody dispute, our aggressive lawyers are here to fight for your rights. While a prostrated legal battle is hardly ever in the child’s best interests, operating from a position of strength is a key element in achieving what is best for you and your child.
Utah Alimony Attorneys
One household becomes two after a divorce, and some spouses often face an uncertain financial future after the marriage ends. In some cases, one spouse may be ordered to pay alimony to another, if certain circumstances apply.
Utah Alimony Arrangements
When divorcing couples disagree on the amount and length of time of alimony payments, the court will make a determination based on a number of factors, including:
- The income and earning capacity of each spouse
- The overall financial situation of each spouse
- The duration of the marriage
- Misconduct of either spouse during the marriage
Whether you are seeking alimony in a divorce or your ex is seeking alimony from you, it is important to have an experienced attorney protecting your interests.
Our divorce lawyers have successfully handled numerous alimony matters for clients throughout Utah.
