Hi,My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'd be happy to answer your questions today.There are a few options in this situation. First, you can put your own assets into a trust, meaning that they would be protected from any claims by creditors of the business. Second, if your husband operates his building as an LLC or a corporation, he would not be personally liable for debts of the business (and neither, by extension, would you). In that scenario, the most important thing that you can do is make sure that all business assets are 100% separate from personal assets. Document everything and keep separate books.Another option is to ask your husband to sign a post-nuptial agreement where he agrees that, if anything should happen, he gets the business and all debts associated with it. But if you're worried that creditors of the business will go after your personal assets, putting them in a trust is likely a better option. The best thing he can do to avoid liability is to create an LLC or corporation.If you have any questions or concerns about what I've written, please reply so that I may address them.
