A Soft Landing is the result of Divorce Financial Planning. A point worth making is a Family Court Judge simply cannot be creative. And a straight up 50/50 split of assets does not always produce an equitable sharing of assets. Imagine transforming dysfunctional financial situations into a future-focused solution. Soft Landings are created when there is an allocation of family assets along the lines of who can best utilize the asset in the future. In effect making the financial pie larger.
Simple Soft Landings Examples
A pension holder swaps their pension value for say their share of the matrimonial home.
Monthly spousal support is converted into a one-time lump sum payment and put to use immediately.
Deferred sale of the matrimonial home until the children go off to High School or University.
These are some very simple examples. There many solutions to every financial dilemma.
