Whether you have a stock ownership in the business, your role, if any, and operating the business are increasing its value, the overall division of the property and debts if you or your spouse own a business, and it’s important to work with your attorney early in your case to develop a strategy for valuing the business and making your case for how it should be treated and the division of property and debts.
