If you recently accepted your partner's proposal for marriage, congratulations. As you start planning your wedding with close friends and loved ones in St. Louis and the Jefferson County areas, be sure to think ahead beyond the honeymoon. You may feel so in love with your partner that you cannot fathom the idea of separation or divorce. Though you have committed yourself to your soon-to-be spouse and are ready to spend the rest of your life with him or her, life happens. When you go through divorce or death, sometimes what appears to be the strongest of relationships comes to an end.
If you own a small, family-run business, you have put countless hours and effort into building a client base and turning a profit. Despite the amount of time and energy that you have invested in your family business, a divorce could impact your ownership rights and your role in the business.
