Reasons to keep up with your business succession plan

A business succession plan is important for transitioning a Massachusetts business to new ownership in the event the original owner dies, leaves the business or retires. Ideally, you want to create your succession plan within your first days of opening your business. But once you have set your succession plan in place, it is important to not assume the plan needs no further attention until the day the plan is to be implemented.

Should I keep a bank account separately from my spouse?

You may hold or have held a lucrative career and, even though you just recently married, still want to maintain your financial independence. You might also be aware of the horrors of high asset divorce and fear you could end up losing a lot of your financial assets if you ever get divorced. However, according to Forbes, you do not have to surrender complete financial independence. You still have the option of opening and maintaining a Massachusetts bank account separately from your spouse, an option that presents a number of pros and cons.

How a divorcing spouse can make your assets disappear

Many people enjoy a good magic show, especially when the magician makes an assistant seemingly vanish before their eyes.

Ways to keep your assets safe from a divorce

Do you fear that a divorce may end up taking away a piece of land or a vehicle you love and cherish, or deplete you of much of your financial capital?

What are the types of alimony?

Why buyout agreements help when business partners divorce

When Massachusetts couples go into business together, sometimes if that marital relationship ends, it can have ramifications for the business the two jointly own.

However, high asset divorce does not have to destroy a couple’s business if the couple elects to sign a buy sell agreement.

How can I cope with a difficult spouse during a divorce?

Sometimes you get lucky and your Massachusetts divorce goes smoothly and quickly. You and your spouse agree easily and there is no fighting. However, that is not always the norm. Often, you will end up dealing with a spouse who is difficult. He or she may not agree to anything you want or may seem to fight you at every turn. This can make for a difficult divorce.
