    The Impact of Divorce on Business

    in Business

    There are three main components that impact business during the process of divorce. The emotional impact can distract a business owner to the detriment of his or her business. There are significant legal issues regarding the impact of equal distribution because a business owned by one or both of the spouses is considered an asset during equal distribution. And finally, there are significant financial issues that can impact the running of a business, such as full disclosure of the finances and operations of a business, when one business partner is going through divorce.
