Divorce Can Be Complicated by a Family Business

Under California law, property, assets and debts are split 50-50 in divorce. The difficulty in applying this law lies in identifying community property and separate property. And, when a family-owned business is involved, the characterization and valuation of the business can cause many complications as property is divided.
