I am looking to form an LLC with business partners, but I would like this business to be protected from future claims from our spouses in case of a divorce.
Is there a contract or post-nuptial agreement that would address such an issue of dealing with a business in a divorce?
I am not licensed to practice law your state. However, I can give you a general answer that may be helpful to you.
Some states, depending on their laws, allow for post-nuptial agreements, which is what you would like. These are contracts entered into between spouses and would allow for the business and financial protection that you are seeking.
However, I am unsure as to whether the laws of your state allow for these agreements, so I recommend that you speak with an attorney licensed in your state for more information on this, and possibly for assistance in preparing such a document.
