My husband and I are getting divorced. He is a (salary) partner

Customer Question

My husband and I are getting divorced.
He is a (salary) partner in a law firm and all going well, I suspect, he'll become an equity partner in years' time. Does that constitute as him being a part-owner of the firm? If so, can I include this "forecast" as part of our divorce settlement?

Yes, he will become a part owner if he gets equity in the partnership. You may do so but until it actually happens, it will just remain a forecast.

All the best
