    Your article highlights the need for individuals owning closely-held or family businesses to have not only a expert business valuator, but a valuator who specializes in divorce. Fair market value is not a good valuation strategy for most family businesses as it assumes an arms-length transaction with a willing buyer and seller, which is not the case in divorce. It is extremely important the valuation be performed correctly from the outset, as once the dissolution is final, it will be difficult or impossible to reopen the issue later if the asset was undervalued.
