Dealing with a business during divorce's property division

This blog has previously talked about the difficulties that men may face when they are going through a divorce and have to valuate some of their higher dollar assets, including their family business. In addition to estimating a business's worth, an Omaha man going through a high asset divorce will also have to figure out, on a practical level, what to do with his business after the dust settles. For that matter, men going through a legal separation or even just a breakup with a long-term business and personal life partner may also face the same questions.

One of the nicest perks that many Omaha men enjoy at their jobs is fringe benefits. Many, if not most, people get some sort of fringe benefits, even if it is only paid vacation. However, particularly among executives and professionals, other lucrative benefits may be available as well. For instance, a man may get the benefit of using a company car even for his personal transportation. In other cases, he may be able to use stock options to buy company stock at a below-market price, thus making hundreds if not thousands of dollars almost instantly.
