Divorce Marital Assets

Divorce can be financially devastating. Frequently, it is an emotionally charged process that can leave individuals with no sense of what their new life will look like, financially. Especially in these uncertain economic times, divorce financial planning is critical for the family’s future financial well being.

Generally, divorcing individuals are fearful. They read and hear horror stories of what others have experienced in their position. Faggio Financial analyzes all the financial aspects of your financial situation, separating facts from fiction, and presents the short and long-term results of alternative settlement options. The result is that our clients become well-informed and savvy decision makers; they know what to expect, and can rebuild their lives on reasonable financial information and planning.

Divorce and Home OwnershipAvoid serious financial problems from your divorce

Most divorcing couples attempt to create a settlement that works for both partners. Unfortunately, even in an amicable divorce, what may look equitable now, often results in financial disaster for one or both of the divorcing individuals over time.

Sometimes 50-50 isn’t equitable

Beginning with the division of property; spouses trade assets until the couple agrees on the division. This should result in an “equitable” transfer of the property, which does not mean “equal.” It does mean what is “fair.” A 50/50 division of property, which may seem “equal” at this time, may not produce equal results-or equal standards of living, after the divorce-if the two spouses are not in the same financial situation at the time of the divorce.
