Pennsylvania business owners considering divorce may find themselves wondering how they can protect their investment in the enterprise and emerge from the end of the marriage with a fair deal. One of the most important pieces of information that can allow a business to be handled properly in a divorce is an accurate valuation, including the assets, liabilities, contracts and future growth of the company. Understanding the numbers can help ensure that the negotiations proceed on clear and straightforward grounds.
While many people in Pennsylvania may not expect that they have much in common with George and Barbara Bush, the couple's passing may lead people to consider some factors that could be important for planning their estates. It is a known phenomenon for long-term, older married couples to pass away in quick succession. Sometimes called "broken heart syndrome," the widow or widower may die shortly after their spouse passed away. In the case of the Bushes, George Bush died less than eight months after his wife Barbara's death.
