Business partnerships

Yes, you would be entitled to one half of what your Husband and you own as partners in the business. Generally, you must hire an expert to value the business and put a monetary value on the value of the business.

My husband and i are partners in a business with several others. We are having problems in our marriage and I am considering permanent separation. My question is regarding my rights as a equal partner in the business. Do i have any legal rights as part of the marriage that will help protect me from my husband trying to sabotage my standing with the other partners ? I have equal standing as part of our partnership agreement but if he tries to turn the partners against me I could lose.
Also, if that happens, do I have claim to part of his share of the business as part of the marriage ?
