Dear JACUSTOMER - If you file for divorce you can expect the court to make an equitable division of property. I know you say you don't want the business however you will most likely be awarded some percentage of the value of the business in other assets. If you own a home you will be able to share the equity of that and, depending on the length of the marriage and the respective incomes of your and your husband you may be entitled to alimony or spousal support.

 

If there are children involved there will be the issues of custody and child support. I would suggest that you get a consultation appointment with a local lawyer to review your options. You don't have to retain the lawyer for the actual divorce but you can at least get an idea of where you stand based on your specific facts. I can only answer in general from this website and cannot tell you specifically what you may receive in the divorce.
