How can I make sure I will keep control of the family business if I get divorced?
The best way to protect the business interest in the family business is through a shareholders’ agreement. A shareholders’ agreement is a document that’s written and agreed to amongst the shareholders while the shareholders are all still in love with each other. It addresses such things as what’s going to happen in the event that the shareholders fall into disagreement, or in this case are divorced. What happens to the interest in the business entity. It spells those things out in advance.
