How can a business owner protect their company during divorce both financially and from disruption?

The easiest way to protect your company is to cooperate, disclose, and provide the documentation that is requested by the other side. Oftentimes people think that a refusal to produce a document or a refusal to be cooperative will somehow eliminate your obligation to provide that information. On the contrary, all that conduct does is generate court orders, potential sanctions, and potentially things like having individuals appointed to come into the business to review the books and go through the records, which is obviously much more of an invasion into the operation and privacy of the business than if the individual owner had just provided the documents requested in the first place.
