How To Keep Your X From Taking Your Oklahoma Business

Posted by Amy Hayes | Apr 15, 2022 | 0 Comments

A.  If you have the business before you are married, we strongly suggest you get a pre-nup. 

  1. To avoid the risk of the pre-nup not being upheld follow these tips: ensure both people involved each had their own lawyer.
  2. Do not get the spouse to sign the pre-nup right before the wedding or the birth of a child.
  3. Do not make a prenup that leaves one spouse destitute and not able to get anything out of the marriage
  4. Avoid making any misleading statements in the prenup.

B. Set up Your Business as an LLC or Corporation.  A lot of the confusion related to divorce as to who gets business because it is often difficult to tell if       assets are personal; assets or business assets.  Don't mix  personal  assets with business assets. 

Below are a few examples of thigs not to do:

  • Paying utilities for both your home and company from the same account.
  • Depositing customer payments into your personal savings account.
  • Using you and your partner's credit card to purchase supplies
  • Putting a personal vacation on a business credit card

Avoid Involving the Spouse In the Business
