Business Valuation in an Oregon Divorce
Every state has different laws when it comes to divorce and matters such as property division. Oregon is an equitable distribution state. This means that the property subject to division does not have to be divided equally, but it should be divided fairly. If spouses cannot come to an agreement out of court, the court will determine a fair property division.
In order to divide all aspects of your estate properly, that property must be assigned a correct value. Some aspects of your estate will be relatively simple to value, such as your bank accounts, your home, and your vehicle or vehicles. However, other aspects of your estate will be less straightforward-including your business if you are self-employed. When business owners divorce in Oregon, the business must be valuated as part of the property division process. Examining all aspects of a business is necessary for a proper valuation.
