Windsor Lawyers Handling Complex Property & Asset Division
Protecting Your Assets, Your Rights and Your Interests
In any separation or divorce, an agreement regarding division of the spouses’ property must be established. While effective negotiations often lead to an amicable arrangement, having a lawyer by your side to guide you and protect your interests is important. When you own a business or you have valuable property, pensions or substantial debt, hiring an experienced lawyer is even more critical to obtaining a favourable outcome.
At Howie Johnson Barristers & Solicitors, we regularly handle complex property division matters for clients in Windsor, Essex County and throughout the region. We approach property division as we do all family law matters, with a focus on providing individualized attention and legal advice tailored to the unique needs of each client.
Dividing Property and Debt
If you and your spouse have substantial assets or debt, dividing your property and determining who is responsible for debts without legal representation is risky. At Howie Johnson Barristers & Solicitors we recommend involving a third party in order to ensure that your spouse is truthful and forthcoming regarding financial disclosure.
Determining the Value of a Business
Are you an owner of a closely held corporation or a small business? If so, valuing your business will be an essential step in the property division process. Our experienced family lawyers and staff have represented numerous business owners, and we are familiar with the business valuation process. We often work with financial professionals to ensure that our clients’ businesses are fairly and realistically valued.
Dividing Pensions: Changes in Canada
Pensions in Canada have recently undergone massive legislative reform that took effect on January 1, 2012. The changes will revolutionize the way property claims are dealt with during separation and divorce and will have a significant impact on those who are facing retirement.
