Many married couples in Michigan, and throughout the U.S., choose to go into business together. For many, this provides the opportunity to earn together and share successes. Should they decide to divorce, however, they may no longer wish to work together. When such couples choose to go their separate ways, their business, or business interests, may have to be included in the property division process. Often, a business division can further complicate an already difficult situation.
According to reports, the stars of the popular reality series, Little People, Big World, recently filed for divorce. It was not disclosed how the couple will handle their family farm, or successful business, in their divorce settlement. The Roloffs reportedly continued running their family farm together over the course of their trial separation. No information was reported regarding any other marital property or assets the couple might share.
Amy and Matt Roloff have reportedly been separated since March of 2014. Although no specific reason was reported for the decision, Mr. Roloff explained that there were tensions between he and his wife when addressing the separation on an episode of the show. The couple has been married for 27 years and share four adult children.
Filing for divorce is almost always a difficult decision. It can be more complicated, however, after many years of marriage and the accrual of significant assets. As such, those who are considering divorce may find it of benefit to seek legal counsel and representation. An attorney may advise them of their options and guide them through the settlement process.
