Business Owner Divorce Attorney
If you own a business, it will be a focus of your divorce proceedings. Your business and income from the business are marital assets that will factor into the determination of child support, spousal maintenance and property division. Whether you or your spouse manages the business, the importance of legal guidance and representation to manage your divorce, minimize risks and protect your rights cannot be understated.
Divorce without the additional complications of business division is a complex process. Attorney Judith Payne has more than 15 years of legal experience, and she can help you navigate through the complexities of business valuation and fair and equitable distribution.

How Much Is Your Spouse Entitled To?
Protecting your business interests and assets in divorce is difficult to take on alone. Typically, fair and equitable distribution calls for a near 50/50 split of household income and marital assets unless some other arrangement can be negotiated. This usually translates as business division or buyout, or the value and income of the business is input to child support or spousal maintenance payments.
Your circumstances and situation are unique. When it comes to the divorce proceedings of a business owner, Judith personalizes and customizes her approach to finding the resolution that is right for you.
