Full Financial Disclosure
Divorce means full financial disclosure of the assets owned by each spouse. Property division may be more complex in some cases than others. When, for example, either or both spouses own a business, a formal business valuation is crucial. Shane McClure works with forensic accountants to obtain an accurate, complete and fair financial picture.
Equitable Distribution of Assets
Factors such as the length of the marriage, assets that each spouse brought into the marriage and well as any property obtained jointly during the marriage must be considered in order to accomplish a proper distribution of assets.
Once a full financial accounting is completed, the parties may negotiate. The one thing that most divorcing couples must understand is that, aside from money, their marital property cannot be literally cut in half. For some types of assets, one person may take sole ownership of one piece of property in exchange for other assets of similar value, such as stocks, pensions or retirement accounts in order to accomplish an equalisation of assets and debts.
A Level-Headed Approach
Shane McClure deals with some clients who wish to relinquish everything to get a divorce quickly. Shane McClure is a valuable, level-headed ally and advocate who will advise you on ways to protect your rights while trying to work out a fair and expeditious divorce settlement.
A Customised Solution Takes Into Account the Unique Aspects of Your Family
In property division matters, a customised solution accounts for the unique aspects of your particular marriage and divorce. This is a worthwhile goal to achieve.
Shane McClure can guide you through the process with professionalism and aggressive representation, because we know that family law separation is one of the most stressful and agonising events in your life and you should always have competent legal representation during those times.
