Thank you for your question.

Your wife can open her own competing business provided she is not a party to the agreement.

Would I be abble to help her ..
Expert:  Ellen replied 7 years ago.
that depends upon the terms of your noncompete. Typically a noncompete would prevent you from helping your wife in a competing business
