Many people grow up imagining the day when they say “I do” to the perfect person, hoping that their relationship will last forever, but the sad truth is that close to half of marriages do end up in divorce, and the statistics are even higher for second or third marriages. Divorce can be an immensely difficult procedure to negotiate. It’s often a very trying time for both parties, as not only are you having to deal with the emotional fallout from the end of a long-term relationship, but you also have to worry about all the legal and financial ramifications as well. If you’re a small business owner, divorce can be especially worrying, as your business could be included in any settlements and your spouse may be entitled to as much as 50% of your business, which could completely devastate your future plans and finances. Fortunately, you do have options and there are ways you can take action in order to protect your business if ever a divorce does occur. Read on for some top tips and potential strategies you can consider.
