Property Exchanges

Assist in the safe and conflict-free retrieval of your personal property while remaining an independent third party witness.

What is property exchange?

Family Solutions Inc. provides supervised property exchanges to our clients when situations develop and conflict may be anticipated. Conflict may be present due to a variety of situations, including, but not limited to:

  • Divorce
  • Separation
  • Business Dissolution
  • Eviction Process

Generally court orders are in place prior to the property exchange and will be strictly enforced by F.S.I. All property exchanges will be evaluated by F.S.I. prior to the exchange date and recommendations to our client will be provided in attempts to limit conflict. Please provide specific concerns and needs directly to Family Solutions Inc..
