    50% of the value of the matrimonial home.
    50% of the amount your pension increased by during those 13 years.
    50% of any other assets (ie savings, stuff in the house, etc)

    Plus an equalization amount depending on what each of your net values was pre-marriage and post-marriage. Generally, you leave in similar shape to how you started out.

    If you have any kids under the age of 22 child support may be needed. It seems unlikely that she would be entitled to spousal support if you both make a similar income. If her career was significantly hurt by the events during the marriage there's a chance she may.

    Let's just say... expensive. Very expensive. In the order of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
