Divorce Attorney Atlanta: 1st Tip for Business Owners
Hi, this is Dave Ward of the Ward Law Firm. We protect business owners facing divorce. And we are going to be discussing three tips for business owners to help protect their business through the divorce process.
Number one is going to be keeping good business records. If you’re familiar with any of our other materials, you’ll know one of the things that we talk about is the importance of record keeping and the role they play in being able to present your case.
A divorce case, like any other case, is a lawsuit. It’s just a particular kind of lawsuit. And you’re going to be in a situation whether it’s at a hearing or at a trial where you’re going to have to prove certain things and invariably where a business is concerned, the best way to do that is going to be having good business records.
The reason why good business records are also important is, chances are they are going to be some disputes over things like the value of the business, how much income it’s producing, these types of things. Keeping good business records helps keep the other party or your spouse from being able to challenge the things that you’re putting forward when you’re presenting your evidence about your income, your expenses, and other valuation type issues because they’re all going to be dependent on this. So maintaining good records is job number one.
