How to protect my business during my divorce?

It is extremely important to get specialist legal advice from our expert Leeds divorce solicitors and family lawyers before doing anything to protect your business. If you try to do something yourself to stop your spouse claiming against the business then this could have some serious repercussions for your case.

If you’ve always kept your business assets completely separate from your private assets then this can help when the courts are deciding on your divorce settlement. If your spouse has never been a part of the business, this can also work in your favour. Being a joint owner of the business, rather than the sole owner, can also help, as the court will not want to negatively impact upon others’ lives.

Specialist legal advice from our expert Leeds divorce solicitors and family lawyers is invaluable, especially in cases that involve businesses. The earlier on in the process you get good legal advice, the better the outcome of your case can be. Finding the right solicitor who can help you should be top on your list of priorities.

Focus your search on solicitors who specialise in dealing with businesses involved in the divorce process. Our expert Leeds divorce solicitors and family lawyers particularly specialise in high net worth individuals with international assets and investments. Our team of experienced Leeds divorce solicitors can also advise you on the divorce processes of international courts, if necessary. Once you have found the right solicitor for you, it is helpful to discuss with them all aspects of your business including what your future plans are and if anyone else has any shares in the business.

 

When do I seek specialist legal advice?

It is never too early to seek specialist legal advice from our expert Leeds divorce solicitors. Even if you are only considering leaving your spouse, we can advise you on the impact that this could have on your assets and investments, including your business. It is better to be prepared and take any necessary action as soon as possible.

If you want to protect your business before you get divorced, you can set up a pre-nuptial or a post-nuptial agreement with your spouse that states they can’t claim against your business. Pre and post-nuptial agreements allow married people to have greater control over what happens to their finances in the unfortunate situation of the marriage breaking down. This is especially important for high net worth individuals with a significant amount of wealth and assets. Our expert Leeds divorce solicitors can provide legal advice at any time throughout your marriage to make sure your assets are fully protected.
