The parties will need to look at the facts objectively. How much attorney time will it take to develop facts about the business? How much will it cost to hire an expert to evaluate the business and testify at trial? If, after gathering preliminary information and trying negotiations, the husband still says the business is worth $50,000 and the wife still believes the business is worth $1 million, the only way to solve the problem may be to go to court. On the other hand, if the business is a very small one, with the husband saying it is worth $10,000 and the wife saying it is worth $15,000, it does not make sense for one or both sides to spend $10,000 in attorneys fees and experts’ fees to try to ascertain a precise value of the business.
