Divorce is notorious for being a difficult, emotionally draining process, but for business owners it can be even more devastating. Especially if the divorcing spouses did not have a prenuptial agreement, the division of assets within the business often mean the end of the business altogether. In many cases, this leaves not only the divorcing couple in dire straights, but also the company’s employees. If you are in a divorce, and your business’s survival is in jeopardy, you need to seriously consider who is going to represent you in the process.
Many divorce attorneys will intentionally stretch out the negotiation process, because this grants them more billable hours. This approach may seem good for their bottom line, but it is not in the best interest of their client. If you are looking at the prospect of losing your business to a protracted divorce battle, you need a divorce attorney who is dedicated to shepherding the negotiations through as quickly and fairly as possible.
Excellent representation for the divorcing business owner means that your legal counsel is there not only to ensure that you are getting the best possible division of assets, but also to steer you away from making emotional decisions that could sink your company. This can take many forms, and may mean that your counsel advises you to take steps that seem unsatisfying, but will ultimately yield the best results for your business and your personal life as you rebuild after the divorce.
