Divorce Issues For Business Owners
Divorce for Small-Business Owners
A small business is built on more than a good product. It is built on good service and personal attention. The personal service you give to your customers is the same one-on-one attention that Gibson Law Offices gives to you when you become our client.
If you are divorcing and are a small-business owner, the issue is not only emotional — it is complicated. Our law firm has been helping small-business owners, family-owned businesses and professionals with LLPs or PLLCs find an equitable division of assets with spouses for nearly two decades. Whether you are the spouse of a business owner, or the business owner with a spouse, we can help.
Experience With Complicated Divorce Issues
With more than 18 years of experience, and having know-how, tenacity and compassion, our law firm is well prepared to deal with the complex and unique issues that accompany divorce and business ownership.
There are a number of considerations with which we are very familiar.
- Valuing business for divorce — The cash value, the value of clientele, property ownership, existing debts, stock options and much more
- Business partnerships — Doctors, dentists, accountants and attorneys in an LLC or PLLC agreement
- Origins of the business — How was it acquired? Is some of it pre-marital? Kentucky has clear laws regarding marital/non-marital assets
- Employees — Is the spouse an employee? How are other employees valued?
- Future ownership — Is the spouse still a part owner? Is there a buyout? On what terms?
