While New Jersey law aims to divide property equitably during a divorce, the definition of what is fair and equitable can be difficult to quantify when it pertains to business assets.
If a business was started before the marriage but grew considerably during the marriage, how did each spouse contribute to its success? If a business was started during the marriage, does each partner have ownership rights?
An experienced family law attorney can help you discover answers to these questions and more, while increasing the odds that the business you worked hard to grow doesn’t become a casualty of your divorce.
