Protecting Business Assets From Divorce

I have been writing and giving media interviews extensively on this subject.  I will shortly be attaching some of the articles and links.  The issue of how a business (even one owned prior to the marriage) can be affected by a divorce, is an issue that touches on a sbustantial number of couples going through a divorce.

It is safe to say that the best time to begin protecting your business from a divorce is before you get married.  Once the marriage begins, the build-up of “marital assets”  begins and can have an increasing affect when it comes time to distribute marital assets as part of equitable distribution.

Preparation of a premarital agreement (which I have previosly discussed) is a popular manner of protecting a premarital business.  However, there are other ways of accomplishing the same results, such as shareholder agreements or placing your business in a trust.  These, and additional ways to protect your business, will be discussed in my future blogs.
