Divorce and separation
Often, we use the term divorce when referring to a marriage that must be dissolved by a judge. Legal separation refers to the formal termination of a partnership between people who have lived together, or been involved in any kind of collaborative partnership, that is being ended. But before this becomes final, a great many formalities need to be arranged. Particularly if one of the two parties is a business owner. In addition to such things as the joint home, alimony and many others aspects, you also need to make arrangements for the legal and financial matters in connection with the company. Do you need advice? Call us. We’ll help you right away!
Some of the most important aspects you both need to agree on include:
- What are the tax implications of a divorce?
- What are the financial implications of a divorce?
- What happens to our home?
- What happens to the pension entitlements built up during the marriage?
- Are there debts? If so, who is responsible?
In our experience, business owners who are in this situation find it helpful to discuss these formalities with an expert. We have in-house specialists who can give you advice on the tax, legal and financial implications involved in ending a marriage or partnership. Our specialists can also assist you in drawing up a divorce settlement.
Divorcing when you are a business owner
Do you own a business or run a company with your partner? If so, you will probably need to take additional measures. What happens to the business after divorce? Will the company be split up? Will you and your partner continue working together. What financial agreements have you made? What happens if one of you quits the business? How will that affect your company’s continuity?

We help small business owners through the divorce process, anticipate your needs, are proactive and act quickly, transparently and clearly. If you need advice and support, call or email us.
