Protect Your Business During Divorce
You own a business and now face a divorce. It may seem clear and simple that you should get to keep the profits, property and assets of the business you have worked hard to build and grow. Right? Wrong. Your business, like it or not, may be subject to division during the divorce process and your spouse may be able to take some of it away from you.
If you want to learn how to preserve your business assets, come to the attorneys at Bieber & Czechowski. We are a Michigan firm focusing on protection and preservation of our clients’ property across a variety of practice areas. We represent business owners in Warren and Sterling Heights and throughout Macomb County.
One of the most frequent questions we get from clients anticipating a divorce is whether their spouse can take part of their business. Our answer: It depends. Was the business owned, operated or purchased prior to the marriage or during the marriage? There are different answers for each client, since every situation varies.
What you need to know is that we strive to minimize your spouse’s interests in your business, maximize your protection and help you maintain control of your business and its value.
Your Business. Your Assets.
You must take aggressive steps to hold onto your business. Right now, your spouse could be seeking court intervention to appoint a receiver to take control of your business. We are prepared to respond quickly and assertively. Our partners have more than 40 years of experience each, representing the interests of business owners with companies of all sizes. Whether yours is a new venture and is just getting started or is worth millions of dollars, let us take care of you and your business.
If divorce is imminent, you may also need to consider changing your estate plan or creating one. We can assist you with this and any other issues arising due to divorce.
