Divorce and Small Business

Your business is a significant financial and marital asset. Whether you are a small business owner or a spouse of a spouse business owner, our law firm is prepared to guide and educate you on the divorce and business process. At Gateville Law Firm, we have the ability to proceed to trial or negotiate a resolution of your divorce matter.

Owning a small business makes for a unique divorce process. Most businesses are illiquid, valuing the interest of a small business is difficult. The decision to sell a business or keep a business intact is a big issue in the process. Generally, the business owner aims to keep the business because they have worked hard to achieve financial and business success. Still, this is something to consider during the dissolution of marriage proceedings.

Working with an experienced small business divorce attorney is vital to your financial best interest. Often, attorneys are not experienced in the areas of small business and closely-held business law. Significant business experience is critical during a dissolution of marriage proceeding because it involves profit and loss agreements, operating agreements, partnerships, and bylaw written agreements among shareholders. Hiring a law firm that specializes in both business and divorce law is a significant investment in your financial future.
