Separation vs. Divorce
Separation is the first step in eventually obtaining a divorce. A separated couple remains legally married but lives “separate and apart” from each other. This usually involves at least one of the spouses moving out of the matrimonial home.
A divorce will not automatically occur after some designated period of separation. In fact, a couple can remain separated indefinitely and never apply for divorce. A divorce is, however, necessary if one or both of the former spouses wishes to re-marry. In order to obtain a divorce, you must first be legally separated for at least 12 months.
Considerations for Business Owners
Business owners and entrepreneurs face important financial and property division issues that should be proactively addressed. Following the breakdown of a marriage, the division of business property is much different than the division of other significant assets a spouse may own, including real estate, possessions, or investments. Property division should be considered at the separation stage prior to finalizing a divorce and requires guidance from a family lawyer with specific experience advising business owners.
