Orlando High-Asset Divorce Attorney
Dividing a Business or Professional Practice
If you own a business or professional practice in Florida, your spouse can claim an interest in your enterprise, even if you owned it before you were married. Similarly, if your spouse owns a business, you may have an interest in it by contributing your time and marital assets, even if your spouse owned the business prior to your marriage. If you or your spouse owns a business, our experienced divorce attorney in Orlando can help you protect your interests.

Protecting Your Business or Professional Practice
There are steps you can take to protect your interests in a business. A key step is to gather financial information early in the process — if possible before you or your spouse files for divorce. Important information and agreements can go missing if not collected and preserved for the court record.
Finally, it's important to have an attorney negotiate on your behalf. It's easy for emotions to take over when discussing division of significant assets with a spouse, especially if you are already on bad terms. In a worst-case scenario, you could be forced to sell your business to pay off your spouse's interest in it, which may not benefit either side.
Finally, not all businesses have value that is subject to marital property division. For example, if you own a service business that has no value other than what you bring to it, it may not be subject to division.
