Legal Help Achieving a Fair Division of Interests in a Closely Held Business or Partnership

Because of our law firm’s large business law practice, our Frisco business divorce attorneys frequently work with clients who own family businesses and privately held businesses. We also work with clients involving business partnerships. When these clients start the divorce process, one of their primary concerns is how the divorce will affect their business interest and whether they can afford to buy out their spouse’s interest (even if the spouse wasn’t involved in the day to day operations).

  • Will you have to sell your business? Or run cash poor?
  • Will you need to raid the assets of the business? Or sell the family home?
  • Will your ex get a share of the business in lieu of payment?

We understand your concerns. We’re business owners ourselves and we’re committed to helping our business divorce clients find solutions that don’t ruin their company or create cash flow problems.

Determining the Value of Your Business

Your Albin Oldner Law, PLLC attorney will not only have access to legal advice from our business lawyers, but they will also work with knowledgeable business valuators to get an accurate assessment of the value of your business. That value would exclude the value that the business-owning partner brings to it. He or she would be treated as an employee without a non-compete agreement, who may start up a similar business.

Sole Proprietorship vs. Corporation

Texas’s community property law does get a bit more complex depending on the type of business you own. For example, if you own a small sole proprietorship that doesn’t have many assets, it is more likely that the business will remain yours.

Corporations or large businesses with many assets are more challenging to divide. In some situations, these businesses cannot be divided but instead may need to be sold. This will require business valuation services to determine the fair market value of your company.

Jointly Owned Businesses

Do you and your spouse both own the business? If so, there are additional considerations to make. For example, the court will want to make sure proper division occurs without destroying the business. This requires creative property division. For example, you or your spouse may need to buy-out the other’s interest in the business or offset the difference with other assets such as 401K plans or home equity.

It’s also possible that you and your spouse can work amicably together in co-ownership of your business after your divorce. You’ll need to determine this and more as you go through your divorce.
