Divorce for Business owners can bring many challenges. Business owners dealing with divorce issues face a large number of complexities. Determining what requires division is also difficult. In many marriages, the business is the single largest marital asset a couple owns. And because of the importance of dividing up the business, a number of challenges arise for both spouses. On the one hand, it is possible for the spouse running the business to conceal assets. On the other hand, profits may require reinvesting into the business to pay for expense. The consequences of mistakes made during the process often result in disastrous consequences for both spouses and for the business.
