Separation or Divorce

A separation always comes with new or unexpected expenses.

We can help

Separation-related financial issues are responsible for 1 out of 4 insolvency cases we see at Jean Fortin. A separation always involves extra expenses, including moving, buying new furniture, and sometimes, taking on debt from the ex-partner. From one day to the next, the same amount of income is going towards supporting two homes. And lawyer fees can quickly add-up if there is a dispute.

Possible solutions

Whether you had financial problems before or after your separation, it’s important to meet with an advisor as soon as you can. The sooner you have a clear understanding of your rights, your obligations and the solutions that are available to you, the better chance you have of pulling through.
