Complex Property & Asset Division

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 Johnson Miller Family Lawyers, 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 Johnson Miller Family Lawyers 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.
