I am starting out (again) 3 years after a very messy divorce with my own lawn care business. My question is: Who owns their own company and has to deal with a nasty ex in reguards to child support??? How do you do it? I guess Im asking if it is possible after the first year when I am making money to pay myself a salary and still be able to keep some of the money in the business? I know this is a question for an attorney or CPA, but I was just wondering if anyone has some experiences. I am quitting my "normal" job so I can have more time off when my kids are here. I have no problem paying her so she can maintain the lifestyle she has become accustomed to but as of now I am paying close to 45% of my take home pay. The state handeling the case is Texas and she has sworn to "get me for everything I got!" Would it be possible for my parents, or my girlfriend to own the business and pay me a salary when I start making the money??? The good news is I only have to deal with her for 13 more years...ugg. Thanks in advance.
