A divorce can involve complex negotiations. You may not agree with your ex spouse on many issues. As a legal proceeding, it is often up to the courts to intervene. You can also seek mediation to settle any disputes outside of court.
Whether your business is well established or just getting off the ground, it is likely to play a role in divorce negotiations. A valuation of your business can become necessary in relation to assets or a potential sale.
Depending on your circumstances, you may feel inclined to either undervalue or overvalue your business. However, from a legal perspective, business valuation is seldom that simple. There are several factors to consider including asset valuation, earning potential, and comparisons with similar businesses that have recently sold.
Grandparents’ rights are complex and not as established as those of parents. Although you are not guaranteed to receive favorable treatment by the courts, your potential role in the lives of children is considered.

There are also legal mechanisms that can result in grandparents seeking and winning custody of children. This area of law is complex and determined on a case-by-case basis. If you are concerned about the welfare of your grandchildren, reach out to Rowsey & Stelter, Attorneys at Law.
