What Can Happen to Your Biz in a Divorce?
A divorce can have serious implications for your small business. Your spouse may be entitled to a share of the business, it may have to be sold to pay for the divorce settlement, or it may lose clients or customers as a result of the divorce. To protect your business, it’s important to have a prenuptial agreement in place. This legal document can help you and your spouse define the terms of the divorce and ensure that your business is protected.
