When you are a business owner, divorce can prove absolutely devastating. Depending on the protections you set up to keep your business separate from your marital property, you may lose the business entirely in the property division portion of the divorce process.
Depending on where you are in the life of the business and the marriage, you may have many different protections available. In some cases, you may even have more options than you might expect. These may range from pre- and post-nuptial agreements to leveraging other assets to keep the business intact throughout the divorce.
