Divorce & Entrepreneur

Our clients include entrepreneurs and their partners requiring specific support during their divorce or separation. In cases such as these, company law and financial aspects play a major role, which makes receiving the right support of great importance. Some questions that might arise:

  • In case of divorce, must the business be divided or settled, and if so, at what value?
  • What to do with any pension claims?
  • How is maintenance calculated?
  • Is only the director/majority shareholder's salary of interest, or do extractions in cash and/or dividend payments also count?
  • How much liquidity can be made available for maintenance in the business?
  • Do the financial statements take on a different appearance during the year of the divorce?

Often, a multi-disciplinary approach is best. We cooperate closely with civil-law notaries, accountants and tax lawyers. Our specific knowledge and experience regarding entrepreneurs and separation or divorce is what sets us apart from many other family law lawyers.
