This has been a very brief, not-all-encompassing look at farm partnership valuations in a divorce action here in Wisconsin. It is meant solely to give one a brief look at some of the issues facing attorneys on both sides of the fence (so to speak). For the record, I have handled somewhere in the neighborhood of a dozen divorces involving large family dairy farms throughout the State of Wisconsin. For a fascinating case on business valuation (non-farm) please see McReath v. McReath, 335 Wis. 2d 643 (2011). Have I followed all the appropriate grammatical rules when writing this short piece? Of course not. I have simply tried to fit as much information into this format as I reasonably could.
