Starting Fresh After a Divorce or Separation

Starting Fresh After a Divorce or Separation

Part of Your Team

Did you know that between 38% and 40% of marriages in Canada end in divorce?

When facing divorce, assembling the right team can make all the difference. Picture this: a divorce lawyer, a financial advisor, a real estate attorney seasoned in divorce sales, a savvy real estate agent experienced in managing such transactions, a mediator skilled in working with divorcing couples, and perhaps even a therapist or counselor to provide emotional support throughout the process. While navigating the emotional upheaval of divorce is undoubtedly challenging, dividing assets and properties can escalate tensions even further. That's why it's crucial to have a solid support system in place to guide you through this transition.

Charting Your Course

The path forward begins with a heart-to-heart with your spouse, assessing your unique circumstances and exploring your options. Consider the common scenarios: selling the home, buying out your spouse, or continuing to reside in the shared property. Each option comes with its own set of advantages and drawbacks.

Another important decision is whether to sell your home before or after finalizing the divorce. Selling beforehand can provide the financial resources needed for a fresh start, while waiting until after the divorce offers a more gradual transition. It's essential to carefully weigh the implications of each scenario.
