Default Net family property and the equalization payment

In another thread I offered a spreadsheet that will hopefully give folks some insight as to the mechanics of the calculations that are involved in the equalization payment for property division purposes.

So, here it is!

Please be warned that the spreadsheet is not dressed up and you will get more out of it by studying the methodology and if you know Excel, but it does give a pretty good example of how one can calculate:

-Net Family Property
-the Equalization Payment, and
-the adjustments used to arrive at the final payment made to settle property division...

...for a married person with a matrimonial home. Bonus points if you make the necessary adjustments to account for common law, or other, situations!

I'm fearful that it will provoke more questions than it answers, but hopefully it helps some folks figure out the calculation.

Please feel free to post questions/comments - I think
