How to Use Business Valuations to Help Your Divorce Clients
Richard L Wolf
A closely held business is often one of the largest assets involved in a divorce, and as such, a common ground for disputes between spouses. To ensure equitable distribution of assets for their clients, many attorneys rely on accredited valuation experts to perform business valuations.
However, despite their familiarity with business valuations, many divorce attorneys struggle to understand how the valuation process works.
Join Richard Wolf, CPA/ABV, CFE, CVA, CGMA, of Gross Mendelsohn’s Forensics & Litigation Support Group as he covers the basics of business valuations, using real-life examples and stories to give you a behind-the-scenes look at the valuation process.
- What a business valuation is, when is it needed and who needs one
- How the methods used to value businesses (income, market and asset) differ
- How to best work with a valuation expert in the Collaborative process

Handling of overnights and very young children
Esther L. Finglass PhD, LLC
Times change and legal values change along with them. Was a time when “the tender years” doctrine defined the court’s attitude towards young children, and mothers were assumed to be the best caretakers. That’s shifted towards a trend for shared access schedules for both parents, and there is an abundance of research with school age children and adolescents supporting the conclusion that maximal time with two loving parents is beneficial for emotional health. But what of very young children? 40% of all births in this country are to unmarried parents. Approximately half of those parents don’t live together and of the other half, unmarried relationships are less stable than married ones. Moreover, 20% of marriages end in divorce within the first 5 years when there are likely to be young children in the household. This talk addresses current research and mental health considerations regarding parent access schedules for infants and toddlers, including overnights with non-residential parents.
