DuPage County Divorce Attorneys Assisting Clients with Complex Business Interests

For many individuals, owning a business represents a life's worth of hard work and dedication. It is something of which to be proud of and, in many cases, is profitable for everyone involved. Divorce can have a significant impact on your business. The impact can be all the more complex if you are not the sole owner of the company. At Calabrese Associates, P.C., we can help you through the complex divorce process for those involved in business partnerships, whether the partnership is solely between the spouses or includes other partners.

Knowledgeable Attorneys Who Understand the Law

When you and your spouse own a business together, the decision to divorce is almost guaranteed to affect you both personally and professionally. You will need to make important decisions regarding the future of your company and your partnership. Some couples are able to continue working together professionally, while others recognize that their personal differences make cooperation unworkable. Whether you decide to dissolve your business partnership and sell the company, or you opt to buy out your spouse's interests, we can help. Our attorneys can work with you in drafting the necessary paperwork, ensuring your rights and interests are fully protected at every stage of the process.

Dividing Partnerships Involving Other Parties

If you or your spouse own part of a company with another business partner (or partners), you need the assistance of an attorney. For example, you will need to determine which portion of the business, if any, is considered to be marital property and therefore subject to equitable division. It may be possible to keep your partnership intact, but doing so may require offsetting the value of your business interests in a creative property settlement. At Calabrese Associates, P.C., we work hard to find responsible, cost-effective solutions that minimize the personal and professional impact of your divorce.

Protecting Your Partnership in a Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreement

The uncertainty of divorce can often be prevented with a comprehensive prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, especially regarding business ownership. If you have started a business with your fiancé, or you are already partners with other associates, our attorneys can assist you with advance planning. Before the marriage begins, a prenuptial agreement allows you to have a better understanding of how your business partnership would be handled in the event of divorce. After marriage, a postnuptial agreement achieves the same goal.
