Divorce For Business Owners And Professionals

The lawyers at Cipriano Law Offices, P.C., have the skills to accurately appraise assets and work toward a fair resolution regarding any property division case. With 50 years experience of dealing with even the most complex of asset division issues, we are uniquely suited in assisting business owners and high-salaried professionals.

Protecting Personal And Business Assets

While every property division matter during a divorce requires unique handling, this is particularly true when it comes to a divorce case where one or both spouses also happen to be a business owner. There must be an accurate determination regarding which are business assets and which are marital assets. Tax issues may also play a role. Such determinations, of course, impact more than the division of property. They may also influence court determinations regarding the payment of child support and alimony.

If personal assets are used to fund the business, the amount of such funding also requires careful documentation. As a business owner, you will want to avoid any allegations that assets are being hidden. At the same time, you will wish to make certain that trade secrets and other confidential business matters are not publicly disclosed.

At Cipriano Law Offices, P.C., we will listen to your concerns and come to know your business goals. We will provide you the kind of advice that directly applies to your case. This includes providing options such as trying your case through mediation, allowing you more control over the conditions of your divorce.

Attorney With Business Valuation Qualifications

Besides being an experienced mediator and family law attorney, Melissa Cipriano has a Master of Business Administration. Melissa also has an in-depth understanding of New Jersey's equitable distribution laws as these apply to marital property division. She routinely provides business owners and professionals facing divorce capable representation and guidance in protecting business assets, making certain the business continues to operate while the divorce is taking place, and making certain your own rights regarding operation and control of the business receive protection.
