"A divorce affects many more people than just the two who’ve decided to split. While it is an uncertain time for the couple’s children, extended family and friends, it also can be a scary time for a business partner," as seen in this article.  Jan L. Bernstein, Chair of the Sills Cummis & Gross Family Law Practice Group stated, "A business owner who has a partner going through a divorce has a unique set of worries because he or she has no control over what is happening.  There will be discovery and valuations of this person’s business that shouldn’t have implications beyond the (business partner’s) divorce. But, as a partner, you want to make sure that your privacy and the privacy of the rest of your employees is protected."
