Division of Property

One of the issues that often arises upon the breakdown of a relationship is how any property owned by the parties is to be dealt with. This shared property can be of any type and can include a home, vacation property, furnishings, bank or investment accounts, pensions, valuables and vehicles. Where a couple is unable to agree on how such property is dealt with, they may need to go to court and obtain a court order setting out who gets what. 

There are specific rules related to the division of property after separation where the parties are unable to agree. As of January 1, 2020, these rules also apply to common law couples who now have the same rights to property as married couples.
