Family Asset Division with Smartsettle Infinity from The Werner Institute on Vimeo.

Even though the law might say that family assets are to be divided 50/50, exactly how to do this can be complicated.  When separating spouses are no longer communicating, do not agree on the values and have complex asset mixes it makes a bad situation even worse . Smartsettle Family Resolutions, using the Smartsettle Infinity eNegotiation system, has a process for parties that are motivated to reach agreement that will move them from competition to cooperation in spite of their differences. This webinar will include a simulation showing how an estranged couple can use Smartsettle to create a separation agreement.  We will show how it will simplify their negotiation by modelling their own preferences, including tax implications of their decisions, so that they are able to clearly compare different alternatives and come to an outcome that maximizes their joint satisfaction based on those preferences.
