Starting a business can be a post-divorce goal

| Feb 10, 2017 | Family Law |

Divorce can spell the end of one chapter of a person’s life and the start of a brand new one. Some might find the beginning of this new chapter to be a good time to dive into some of their goals for their life that have been on the shelf for awhile. For some people, this might include starting a business.

A recent Entrepreneur article went over various reasons why the time following a divorce might be an ideal time to become an entrepreneur. The experience, confidence and wisdom a divorced person built up over the course of dealing with the challenges and situations that came up during their marriage and their divorce could prove quite an asset when doing things like trying to get a business started. Also, after a divorce, new sources of income, such as the income streams a start-up could bring in, can prove quite helpful.

When a person has starting a business as one of their post-divorce goals, many things could impact how able they are to achieve this goal. One is how the various proceedings in their divorce, particularly those related to financial matters, go. What happens when it comes to things like property division and spousal support could have great impacts on what sort of financial state a person is in after a divorce. What their financial state is could have many implications for a person when they are starting a business. For one, it could impact their options regarding funding their business.

As this illustrates, many different post-divorce goals can be heavily impacted by what happens in a divorce. Skilled divorce attorneys can advise individuals on what particular issues in their divorce could have ramifications regarding their post-divorce goals and what approaches they could take in regards to these issues to help with their goals.
