In Divorce which “half” you get makes all the difference
The financial ramifications of divorce can be devastating! But, with proper planning and expert help from professionals specializing in financially equitable divorce settlements, you can increase your chances of arriving at a settlement that fully addresses your long-term financial needs. What’s missing in most divorce processes is financial expertise!
You must understand that a 50/50 division of property, though it may look equal, is not always fair and equitable. There are financial and tax implications affecting many assets that you need to be educated about before making any decisions. RRSPs, pensions, stocks, homes, etc should all be considered and treated differently. Though it may appear that each of you is retaining an equal share of the property, there are many issues requiring consideration that may actually leave you with truly less than “half”.
As well, the income that each of you will have post-divorce should also be a factor in considering which assets to retain. The future growth of your assets and your continued ability to build in the future should not be overlooked. You must consider not only the short-term but also the long term forecast of your proposed settlement.
Secure your financial future by ensuring you have a clear understanding of any proposed settlement. You only get one shot. Do it right the first time!
