I am an entrepreneur who has had to "retire" due to the recession, and am moving toward re-entering the corporate workforce. To be honest, I am looking forward to working less hours I have owned/partnered in (2) printing companies, (1) advertising publishing company and (1) graphic design & marketing company over the last 7 years.
My wife has been an equal partner/owner with me; sharing these duties along with many functional responsibilities. As such for many, many projects she is technically the organization contact for whom I performed project management duties.
My question is: If I were audited, will the fact that I am married to the primary organizational contact for whom I performed project management cause my audit to "fail"? She would be the one to sign-off on any professional experience verification documents.
I see nothing unusual with your situation. Husband/wife companies are quite normal. The audit of your application isn't intended to focus on your relationship with the contact person, but instead on the validity and truth of your statements.
So I don't see an issue here.
