HELP FOR SPOUSES OF BUSINESS OWNERS
Just because your spouse owns a business does not mean he or she will necessarily get to keep all of it. You gave likely contributed to the success of the business during your marriage, especially if you are a partner. If you are concerned about what will happen to your spouse’s business when you divorce, let Brian D. Perskin & Associates P.C.take a look at your case. We have represented spouses of business owners before, helping them get the assets they deserve.
LET OUR ATTORNEYS SUPPORT YOU AFTER DIVORCE
You need the guidance of a lawyer who has experience representing spouses of business owners, especially if you have invested several years in both the marriage and the company. You need to ensure that you continue to reap the benefits of the business, since these should not stop just because you are facing divorce.
Your quality of life can likely stay the same or even increase after divorce, since you should be entitled to the same benefits you have been receiving all this time. Your spouse cannot simply take the business -and its profits – and leave you with nothing to show for your commitment to the company. Since a business usually counts as both an asset and a stream of income, you should be offered at least part of it.
WE CAN ENSURE BUSINESS VALUATION GOES SMOOTHLY
Our legal team can perform the research necessary to determine the value of the business. We consult with experts to make sure the results are accurate so that you get as much as you can out of the business. You deserve to profit from it just as much as your spouse does, especially if you are raising children. Divorce should not take away this type of asset, and it certainly should not eliminate your income.
Depending on the nature of the business, and how much money it generates, it should be considered both an asset and a source of income. This means that its value can greatly affect the amount of child support or alimony you receive. For this reason, it is crucial that the business value is accurate. If you believe an error has been made, let us know so we can look into the matter before you lose money that is rightfully yours.
