How many times do we make decisions, sign documents, and realize afterward that we only had part of the information needed to make informed decisions? The ‘should haves’, ‘would haves’, ‘oh if I only knew then what I know now’ can leave us frustrated and full of regret. No event can bring these issues to the forefront more than divorce.
January is the month where more people initiate a divorce than any other month of the year. But making the decision to divorce and actually arriving at closure on the issues can be a long and daunting journey.
Child support, spousal support, valuation date, custody, Section 7 extraordinary expenses, pro rata income, access, assets, liabilities, equalization of net family property. Are you pulling your hair out yet? And don’t forget the information and advice that comes from co-workers, neighbours, family and friends. Well, you can always go on the internet. If you don’t mind spending hours and hours reading and researching only to be more confused than when you started. Can’t someone just talk in plain English? Why isn’t there one simple answer?
The good news is that there are more information services available today than ever before. The bad news – there is more information available than ever before and it can become overwhelming.
If you are interested, our team has been busy planning for several initiatives that will help make sense of this very confusing time. We have lined up several events this month to help people get the right information.
