Q: I own a business with my family. We are fighting. How do we split the business or what rights do I have
Mom and me and my brother are listed as owners
A: If you are a corporation did you have a shareholders' agreement. If you are an LLC, do you have an operating agreement. Your rights would be explained in the agreement. If no agreement, then your rights would be set forth in a statute.
A: You will want to reference your business internal documents (LLC would be your operating agreement and so forth), if no such agreements were drafted then you would have to resort to and look at the Florida Default Statutes based on the type of entity you created. You should try to find a way to settle this as reasonably as possible, having to resort to legal counsel will take time and cost money to address it through the courts.
