Customer Question

My husband just started a company with a partner but now the partner wants me to sign a separation so that I can't touch her part of the company. My husband has 51% and she has 49%. Is this right or is there some kind of altered motive behind getting me to sign this.

That is not right as it does not at all reflect the law.

You can never get a portion of the business.

If you and your spouse separate he would owe you a share in the value of the business but not the actual business.

You should certainly not sign as she has no right to dictate what you and your spouse do.

Does that answer the question?
