Equal Shares - Marital Property Division and Equalization
Software Which Informs Users When a Settlement Is Not Tax Smart and
Takes the Guesswork Out of Financial Planning for Divorce.
FinPlan Equal Shares only releases updates when there are substantial changes to the software. Nominal changes are updated with a downloadable patch. This software equitably divides marital property. It can be used for all states.
Why Equal Shares
Equal Shares goes beyond simply dividing marital property, but rather translates results into understandable reports including charts and graphs. Equal Shares shows a detailed summary of general information, assets, liabilities and reimbursements. Quickly enter data, assign value and ownership and identify how much cash is needed to equalize the distribution. Import duplicated data from Assets Plus to Equal Shares.
Available States
Equal Shares may be used in any state.
