How is a Business Divided in an Arizona Divorce?
Dividing a Business in an Arizona Divorce
The Arizona Court of Appeals in the case of McCune v. McCune addressed, among other issues, whether a judge should grant a spouse a judgment for his or her community property interest in the other spouse’s business or, instead, should the court just divide the stocks between the parties.
Although there could be situations that justify a different result, most judges favor as clean a division of property as possible to eliminate any business, personal, or legal ties that can lead to future conflict. As a result, most judges favor awarding all of the stock of a business to one spouse and compensating the other spouse for his or her interest in that business through the division of the parties’ remaining property or entry of judgment.
