In Canada, divorce between parents is covered by the Divorce Act (federal). However, provincial governments are also responsible for making the rules about how to get a divorce in their jurisdiction, including the actual sharing of property. Generally speaking, property that one spouse brought into the marriage remains theirs, while property acquired during the marriage must be divided equally between spouses.
In divorce or separation proceedings, lawyers are often involved for both parties, who cannot agree on division of assets accumulated over several years.
In all cases, having an independent and impartial property appraisal by a certified appraiser can make a key difference. Our appraisal company can give you the information you need, when you need it.
Our divorce appraisals offer you:
A Fair Market Value (FMV) on all assets based on sound research
