My spouse and I run our own business and I do not want it to go belly up as a result of our divorce. How can a family law lawyer help me save our business?
A family law lawyer can help you save your family business by giving it priority during interest-based collaborative negotiations.
In many family law matters involving children, the spouses are able to agree to cooperate in order to address the best interests of the children. In many ways, a family business can be used as a similar incentive: spouses can agree to cooperate in order to address the best interests of the family business.
While fueling conflict is an almost unavoidable side effect of the court system, a collaborative approach is a very effective method in reducing the impact of separation and divorce on family run businesses. This process seeks to ensure that the business remains viable for both spouses, as well as future generations.
