Protect Your Business Throughout Divorce
If you own a business, one of your divorce priorities might be shielding your business in property division. It is common for spouses to assume that they will get to keep exactly half of a business.
However, the reality is more complicated. Washington courts divide marital property, which may or may not include the business, equitably. This means your case could have several different outcomes – and each outcome could have a varying impact on your business.
