There aren’t special network marketing laws regarding divorces. The same laws that regulate dissolutions of marriage in each state regulate the fate of a distributorship in a divorce situation. In court proceedings, valuations are placed on the distributorship just as other assets are valued. Network marketing companies, however, commonly ask distributors to inform the company who will be the successor distributor after a divorce.
