Do I really need an appraisal expert? — DIY valuations can lead to inequitable divorce settlements
Abstract: When divorcing spouses own a business, it’s usually their biggest, most illiquid asset. So it’s important to have an accurate idea of how much it’s worth. Appraisers bring concrete market evidence and a range of other resources to the table. This article explains how appraisers accurately value such assets, thus helping ensure that complex marital estates are equitably distributed. Wood v. Wood, Case No. 09SL-DR00721, 2011 Mo. App. LEXIS 1589, November 29, 2011.
