Hello, my name is*****’ve been asked to look at this for you, thank you for your patience.
Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.
The only way you would formally find out what the joint assets are is by asking for financial disclosure, of all assets and bank accounts.
If he won't divulge this information willingly, the you would need to first file for divorce, then try family mediation to see if this information can be shared through that route.
If not, then you apply to the court for a financial order and the court will order him to disclose all of his assets.
The starting point would be an equal split of all assets.
I hope this assists?
The business would not be sold automatically. It is impossible to give a generalised view about this, without some idea of the assets in play.
It could be that he is awarded the business assets and you the personal ones - it will really depend on the actual figures though.
I hope that is clear.
