Splitting up assets and property in a divorce

Family law lawyers often help couples who have decided to get a divorce through many aspects of the separation. Not only are you emotionally separating yourself, you are also splitting up your finances and possessions. When you have worked together to get these possessions such as paying off a home or partially paying off a house, you know how wrenching it can be. Bringing what was supposed to be a lifelong commitment down to dollars and cents can be so difficult.

Don't let what can be a fairly orderly process become emotionally fraught. Having a lawyer from the Calgary Family Law Associates can ensure that the splitting up of assets and property happens with the least amount of acrimony as possible. There doesn't have to be hostility in this process. We have many years of experience in helping our clients get what is rightfully theirs.

Calling us in at the beginning of the process is a good idea. That way, we can help you avoid contention that may come out of trying to decide who gets what.

We have a team that you can rely on to see that the split is fair and equitable. We use a third-party valuator to see what your family home will sell for. If you have a vacation home or a rental property, we know who to call to get an estimate for you.

If you came into the marriage with property, that property remains yours. If you made upgrades to the family home with your own assets, this cannot be recovered. It must be included in the price of the estimate that you will receive once an inspection is done.

We can help you when you need it most. Avoiding some of the headaches and heartaches that can come from dividing your property in a divorce is what we want most for you.
