Neither of us have a pension.

I have for the most part been an independent contractor, worked hard and saved diligently, and been fully responsible for my own retirement. My RRSP is equalized....

She has never worked and is loaded (through inheritance) and is simply a financial disaster zone.

In theory Rioe, I know what you're trying to say... but the more I learn, my case quite unique in terms of it's subtleties...

Financially diligent person + Financial disaster person + Ontario Family Law + rule of 65 = living nightmare.

I could write a book.

Sounds like the other party was locked in a situation similar as to the one outlined here:

Remember, retirement is a material change in circumstance and SS will adjust to your income based on your retirement.

Good Luck!

Wow, I really feel like I got off easy .... we settled after 2 mediation appointments. He took all property and debts and paid me a settlement plus I keep my income (no spouse payments) and all of my investments including my pension. Done. Woo Hoo!
