    Depending on the facts, yes. Could also be good case of fraud, misrepresentation, etc. Find a local business litigation attorney to help sort things out.

    Creative. But doubtful. Prenuptial costs related to protection of business assets may be deductible. Call a local CPA.

    You would use an "escrow" company to handle the transaction. Money and ownership doesn't change hands, unless all the requirements are met, and some of these requirements can be payment of the debts. You can use a "real" escrow company, or an attorney acting as an escrow.

    Courts will allow certain amount of leeway for unrepresented litigants, but in the end of the day, it is a complex system and having an attorney who knows their way gives a clear advantage that is hard to overcome, even if the facts are on your side.

    If he is declaring these as business expenses, then he is committing tax fraud. Sounds like he is also commingling funds, so he will lose his corporate protections.
