– from Annie C. in North Prairie, WI
I am just beginning divorce negotiations with my husband. So far it has been amicable (to an extent, of course). The areas of tension tend to fall around his business. We have agreed on maintenance and family support, but not his total worth. I want to count all areas of his half of the business he and his partner jointly own. He is arguing that work in progress cannot be counted toward divisible income because it has not been completed. He also argues that it will be split between him, his partner, and overhead before it becomes his spendable income, and then there are taxes. My question is, which areas of his business will be divided?
