Divorce and business can be a difficult combination

For couples ending their marriage in Pennsylvania, divorce can be a complicated, fraught and emotional time. This can be accentuated when one or both spouses own a business that is subject to inclusion and division in the divorce. Even beyond its value as a significant financial asset for the marriage, the business can be a central part of one or both partners' professional and personal identities.

Complications of dividing a business in a divorce

Pennsylvania business owners may face additional stress when they get divorced, regardless of whether their spouse was a partner in the business. For many business owners, the company is their greatest asset. Therefore, it's important to get an accurate assessment of its value prior to sitting down at the negotiation table.

Creating a co-parenting plan is a marathon, not a sprint

You don't have to like the divorce process, but you do have to go through it if you end your marriage. Most people just want to get it over with as quickly as possible so they can put the ordeal behind them. Unfortunately, going too fast could mean missing important details that could make your future as a co-parent go more smoothly.

Predicting divorce

No one can state without a doubt that certain Pennsylvania couples will get a divorce. However, there are some factors that can be used to predict if a divorce will occur. The age at which couples get married can influence whether they get a divorce. According to research, teenage couples and couples in their mid-30s who get married have a higher chance of divorcing than couples who are in their late 20s or early 30s. Couples who get married when they are teenagers carry a particular high risk of divorce. Couples who get married after the age of 32 will see their risk increase annually by 5 percent.

How divorced fathers can stay involved with their children

Fathers in Pennsylvania who are getting a divorce might be concerned about custody and visitation. While there is a common myth that divorced fathers do not want to spend time with their children, this is far from the truth for many. They might want to consider options including sole or shared custody before negotiations begin.
