Complex Business Matters

Experienced Guidance in the Division of Family Business Assets

Dividing marital assets in divorce can be a complex process for any marriage, but especially for those cases involving family-owned business assets, high-value asset companies and professional practices such as legal, medical or dental practices. At the Law Office of Susan J. Ralston, in Rocklin, we understand the complexities of dividing business assets in divorce. By driving assertive negotiations and engaging in thorough preparation, we seek fair and mutually beneficial solutions that protect the viability of your business without draining the asset during the divorce process. Our goal is to secure your business for your future.

Dividing Complex Marital Assets

In a complex or high-asset divorce, it is critical that the assets and property are thoroughly evaluated to ensure an equitable division of property. To accomplish this goal for our clients, we work with leading experts in economics, forensic accounting, business valuation and other fields. We handle a wide range of complex marital property division matters, including those involving:

  • Business valuations
  • Division of corporate partnership assets
  • Ownership of residential, commercial and ranch real estate
  • Stock options
  • Inheritance
  • Tax issues
  • Division of pensions, IRAs, 401(k)s and other retirement assets
  • Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDROs)
  • Self-employed or family-owned business assets and investments
  • Investment portfolios
  • Medical practices
  • Dental practices
  • Legal practices
  • Corporate partnership assets
  • Limited liability companies
  • Offshore or hidden assets

What About the Business Itself?

If you are self-employed or operate a family-owned business, you may wonder what to do with the business itself and how to divide shared assets. We can help make informed decisions given your business goals. This may include negotiating a business separation agreement apart from your property division settlement or considering business dissolution. In all cases, we will consult with the appropriate business and tax experts to structure a settlement that minimizes your tax liability.
