Divorce paper

Dear Attorneys,


My husband and I are getting a divorce, but we own a business together. It’s really his, I have not done much in it, and we have debt that I do not want to be responsible for. When can I transfer it to him?

Dear Bizzy,


If you and your husband agree that he should retain the business, then you can likely draft an agreement pertaining to such to have him file with the State. This can be done during the pendency of your divorce. However, if the business itself, or the debt attached to such, is in question, you may need to wait until the divorce is finalized so that you and he are both in agreement about how it should be handled (or possibly, dissolved).
