Here’s how to protect a business from divorce

By Jacqueline Newman | June 8, 2015 | 0 Comments

The number one way to protect your business from becoming a controversial issue in a divorce, is to enter into a prenuptial or post-nuptial agreement which clearly states how a business would be valued and/or distributed in the event of a divorce.

10 Tech Issues to Consider If You’re Going Through a Divorce

By Jacqueline Newman | February 18, 2015 | 0 Comments

If the end of a marriage is looming, it can seem insane to be thinking about things like how to deal with that shared Flickr account, who the iPhone 6 contract really belongs to, and even what to tell your Facebook friends.

But treating these shared intangibles with less consideration than the traditional stuff can impact your divorce, whether it’s a Facebook venting session ultimately affecting a judge’s child custody decision or an unwiped computer allowing a vengeful ex to stalk you.
