Financial Issues of Divorce and Separation
Separation and divorce requires careful consideration of your assets, property, debt and financial support of children and your spouse. We are prepared for Family Maintenance Enforcement and spousal support claims. There may also be special financial considerations involving a family-run business, investments, trusts, pensions, savings and other financial interests. These can be complex or straight-forward, but every situation is resolved with a long-term view of your best interest.
Long-term marriages often include a significant combined net worth with unique and complex issues. Accurate valuation of all marital assets at the start and end of a relationship is required to ensure fair and equitable division of property (domestic, cross-border and international), business interests, professional practices, shared accounts, stock options, retirement accounts and pensions, executive bonus packages, inheritances, etc.
Our skill and sensitivity will advance a resolution with the most emotionally-charged assets including a family cabin or recreational property or a family business. These issues can become very difficult to resolve and our clients have trusted us to help guide them using a measured, yet effective approach.
We can help you sort out your financial issues and consequences regardless of your net worth or years of marriage.
