Divorce and Business Don’t Mix

divorceI spent the afternoon reading through articles on divorce impacts on small business as part of planning for our CEO Law Forum event in March.  I have to say, if you are a business owner – a substantial risk to your biggest asset, your business, is having the unfortunate fate of divorce.  In almost every story I found, the high likelihood of business and personal bankruptcy, complete business loss, or worse, spousal take-over of a business happens…more than we would like to know, and let’s face it, when you are getting married are you really going to approach your future spouse for a prenuptial agreement and will it even hold water – you may not make it to the alter after asking for one, but what exactly are your risk?  You should know!  What if you have been married for 5, 10, 15, even 20 years and built a business together, was it pre-decided what the succession plan would be in the event of the divorce or was it just considered someone would get half, and then everyone ends up with zero?

If you are married and in business or getting married and have a business, you have to know the risk to the business in the event of a divorce.  Join us on March 21 for our CEO Law Forum at FGCU Cohen Center from 8-1 and learn more about protecting your business in the event of a divorce, plus get one-on-one time with one of the several business attorneys that day.  Continental breakfast and a hot lunch provided.  register online at https://clients.floridasbdc.org/workshop.aspx?ekey=900350027
