Marital Dissolution

Marital dissolutions (divorces) may often involve complex rules regarding what business assets of the spouses should be included or excluded from the community estate, particularly regarding the professional goodwill of a spouse, which may vary from state to state. Divorces involving physicians may be further complicated due to the various ownership interests held by the physician-spouses, including ownership in a medical practice, ambulatory surgery center or surgical hospital, healthcare real estate assets, and other ancillary businesses (i.e. dialysis centers, diagnostic imaging centers, labs, etc.).  As a result, the valuation of the portfolio of assets can be costly and time-consuming. As independent valuation experts offering expert opinions on the valuations of businesses, real estate, machinery & equipment, and complex compensation and management services arrangements, VMG Health can help parties navigate an expeditious and cost-effective resolution to community property matters.  And when collaboration and compromise is not possible, VMG Health experts can provide compelling testimony before a trier of fact.

VMG Health experts have provided deposition, mediation, and trial testimonies in matters involving marital dissolutions. We also provide various other services to our clients, including forensic accounting, tracing, characterization, and wasting analysis. We also provide rebuttal analysis and deposition preparation for opposing experts, and settlement review and consultation
