I HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR SEVEN YEARS AND MY WIFE DECIDED TO LEAVE ME AFTER I TOLD HER TO GET A JOB, GO TO SCHOOL TO DO SOME THING WITH HERSELF OR GO BACK TO HER MOTHER. SHE DECIDED TO LEAVE ME THE PROBLEM I HAVE IS THAT I HAVE A SMALL BUSINESS THAT I OPENED DURING OUR MARRIAGE. MY BUSINESS IN INCORPORATED AND I OWN 100% OF THE STOCK. NOW SHE LEFT ME WITH ALL OUR BILL AND SHE WOULD NOT HELP ME BECAUSE SHE SAYS THESE ARE YOUR BILL PAY THEM YOURSELF. MY QUESTION IS IF I DIVORCE WILL I HAVE TO SELL MY BUSINESS OR GIVE HER HALF THE INCOME. I DID NOT USE HER NAME OR CREDIT TO START MY BUSINESS. ALL FINANCING IS IN MY NAME, THE ONLY THING HER NAME IS ON IS A CLAUSE IN MY LEASE IF SOMETHING HAPPENS TO ME THAT SHE WOULD PAY THE RENT. THE LEASE IS THROUGH THE CORPORATION
