Even if the spouses decide to separate amicably, it does not always follow that they will agree on the terms of the separation and settlement agreement. That is why it is essential that the parties be represented by competent matrimonial attorneys who understand the spouses’ rights and responsibilities and can explain the complex legal framework to the spouses. It may be difficult to divide or separate some of the marital property, and some tradeoffs may be necessary instead. Part of the difficulty in property division is in the closely-owned Businesses by one or both spouses. Valuation of such businesses may significantly affect the property division plan between the spouses, and skilled lawyers have certain knowledge basis and resources available to them to assist in the process.
