This is particularly true if business assets are included in such proceedings. Typically, when one spouse owns and operates a business, whatever increase in value that the business experienced during his or her marriage is considered to be a marital asset. Thus, the valuation of a business is crucial in determining each spouse's interest in this asset (as is the date on which the valuation occurs).

What divorce means in an asian-american community

As a factor in both ex-partners' standard of living, these payments deserve the same attention as any other source of income.
