Equitable Distribution of Businesses

Included among the assets subject to equitable distribution during a divorce are businesses. Unlike many assets, the valuation and distribution of a business can sometimes present unique problems. There are different methods that can be used for business valuation. Some are more scientific and accepted by the Courts than others. The process of obtaining business valuations can be costly and burdensome. We can help guide you in the proper direction.

If a business was created prior to the marriage and the other spouse was not a part of the business, they are not necessarily entitled to a 50% stake in the business and there are important issues to negotiate.

It is also important to understand that distribution of a business can play a direct role on the amount of spousal support awarded. Often times, if a business supported the marriage, the amount of support can be waived or increased based on whether or not a marital business is divided. Every business situation is different and must be addressed on a unique case-by-case basis. At Garces, Grabler, and LeBrocq, we are here to advocate for you in this important issue.

I was very impressed with the professionalism and quick turn-around time from all the participants from GGL that assisted me. I would like to especially thank my attorney Jonathan Kessous. His credentials are very notable he is one of four attorneys throughout the entire state of NJ certified by the NJ Supreme Court as a Trial Specialist in both Criminal and Municipal Court Law matters. My case was very serious and could have resulted in jail time or suspension of my license. Jonathan was able to resolve my case very favorably. I am extremely thankful for his assistance. I would also like to recognize and thank his Paralegal Jasmin Caba and his Personal Assistant Marianne Crisitello for their assistance in communicating and preparing me for my trial. They are a great team and I would highly recommend them.

I had the good fortune of Mr. Pasquale Vella representing in a matter that I had deemed a bleak one, with no positive outcome in sight. Vella assured me that he would work hard to get me the best results possible, and that is exactly what he did. He worked tirelessly making sure he covered all possible angles, and in the end I was extremely pleased with his services. Vella proved to be diligent, aggressive in yielding results, and very professional, all while maintaining a communicative yet good natured rapport with me as his client. I would most certainly use his services again in the future as well as highly recommend him to anyone in need of a great criminal defense attorney.
