The Beginning of the Process

Our lawyers are successful in helping business owners in divorce because we are very detailed. We will take the time to learn about your business. You can expect a lot of questions from us, such as:

  • How is your business set up? Is it a limited liability company (LLC)?
  • How and when was the business established? Was it inherited? Did you start it before or during your marriage?
  • Are there co-owners of the business? If so, how much of the business do you have a stake in?
  • Is your business publicly traded? If so, how is the stock titled?
  • Does your spouse have a stake in the business? Is your spouse’s name on loans or any other paperwork?

These questions may be the tip of the iceberg. Valuation is also an issue. The bottom line is that we will ask you as many questions as necessary to determine the best approach to achieve your goals. That brings us to the most important question of all: What are your goals in relation to the business? Do you want to keep it? Do you want to sell it? We will use our experience to achieve your goals.

Dividing the Value of the Business, Along With the Debt
If the business, or some portion of the business’s value, is marital property, your spouse will need to receive a portion of that value. That can happen in a variety of ways. For example, you may keep the business, while your spouse gets a higher amount of other assets.

Many businesses also have debts attached to them. Some or all of that may need to be divided. Your spouse may have just as much responsibility for the debt as claim to the value of the business. We will not overlook this detail.
