My ex has agreed to give up his shares in my company in exchange for a larger payment paid by me when the company is sold. What is the best way to formalize this without spending thousands of dollars in legal and court fees?
This question can’t be answered without knowing what stage in your judgment and divorce you are. However, even if it’s post judgment, you can always have an attorney draft a stipulation and order and send a signed stipulation and order to the court for the courts signature. This will not cost thousands in legal fees.
This is general advice. You are anonymous. If you PM me i won’t know what it’s about.
It sounds like you need to have an addendum or a stipulation that modifies the judgment. An experienced family law attorney can draft the paperwork for you fairly easily.
