Know how property value is determined and how property is divided

In our prior blog post, we discussed how the marital home is one of the biggest considerations when a couple is going through a divorce. There are many different considerations that the couple has to consider when they are dividing up their assets and debts. These include the value of the assets and the cost of the debts. It can also include how the value of assets changed from the date of the marriage to the date of the separation.

The marital home is often a source of contention in divorce

The property division process is a contentious one that can make divorce a very difficult experience. One of the assets that some couples often have to decide what to do with is the marital home. This is often the largest asset the couple has. Deciding what to do with the home is something that takes a lot of thought.

Moving, child custody and the challenges you might face

When most people want to move, they do so without having to ask the court. That isn't the case when the person who is moving has a child custody agreement and the move would take the child far away from the other parent. In our previous blog post, we discussed that issue as it pertained to two Canadian children and their father in Russia.

Marriage contracts can't include certain points

In our previous blog post, we discussed the importance of ensuring your marriage contract is legal and binding in Canada. Some people might have questions about these contracts because they were considered against public policy until the 1980s. Now, these contracts are becoming more common and they are legally enforceable to a large degree.
