Coronavirus, Divorce and Family Law:

We are open!

Higdon Hardy & Zuflacht is taking a safe but proactive approach to the Coronavirus situation in our law practice. We are working every day to represent our family law clients. At the same time, we are following best practices to protect the health of our employees and our clients. To read more please Click Here

All our employees understand that they should not be working if they are sick, and in particular, that they should not be at our office while sick.

To further protect our employees and our clients we are encouraging meetings by phone, Zoom, Skype or similar means. We have represented clients from out of state and out of the country in this manner for many years. Our clients often prefer this to traveling to our office.

We are also working with the divorce and civil courts, as well as opposing counsel, to arrange court appearances, settlement conferences, and other litigation events remotely whenever possible.

To further protect the health of all concerned, all our attorneys and staff have the technology and capability to work on cases and with clients from home as well as at the office. Your phone calls will be returned. Your emails will be answered. Your case deadlines will be met.

The days ahead may be a challenge. We do not yet know the extent to which particular courts will curtail trials or even the extent to which HHZ will have clients and other guests come to our office. We will continue to work to take care of our clients’ cases and to take on new matters and clients. We will simply manage your case in less traditional, more technology-driven ways, that are safer for your health and ours.

Thank you for your trust.

Trust Our Experience. Family Law is what we do.

San Antonio Business Valuation Lawyers

When divorcing spouses own a business, either a portion or all of that business is subject to division in the divorce process. This stipulation is a source of anxiety for many dedicated business owners because it introduces the possibility of losing ownership shares or sacrificing some control of the business that they poured their time, money, and energy into building. These fears are understandable, and we believe it is important to protect your interests in the face of divorce.

At the law firm of Higdon, Hardy & Zuflacht, L.L.P., we understand that the division of business assets is a major concern for any business owner. It is crucial for an owner and their divorcing spouse to retain control over how their business is divided so the decision is not left in the hands of the court. As a business is the source of livelihood for many former spouses, enlisting knowledgeable help when accurately appraising your business is invaluable. Our skilled business valuation lawyers have helped clients all over South Texas with the division of their businesses and have an extensive background in business division and meticulous appraisal. Our legal team works diligently to ensure we achieve the most optimal outcome that benefits the interests of our clients.

Factors in Valuing a Business

If the business was established before marriage, the amount up for division depends on how much the business increased in value since the start of the marriage. However, if the business was started during marriage, the entirety of it is considered part of the marital assets subject to division. Businesses are valued based on:

  • What the business owns
  • What the business owes
  • The business’ income
  • The method used to determine the value
  • The valuation date

This process involves many complex factors that require comprehensive business knowledge on matters such as tangible and intangible property, the value of intellectual property, and which method of valuation would best serve your interests.
