In Ontario, the Family Law Act contains a formula for equalizing assets and debts that accumulated during the marriage, specifically, from the date of marriage to the date of separation.
In a common law relationship, spouses have no statutory property rights. The splitting of property and assets is achieved by proving specific claims based upon a variety of factors and evidence.
How Experienced Southwest Ontario Lawyers Can Help
Our law firm can assist with the Equalization of all property and assets, including:
- the Matrimonial home
- Real estate
- Cars and other vehicles
- Pensions/retirement accounts
- Family businesses or business interests
- Other family assets of value
The consequences of not properly assessing each party’s property may result in someone giving too much, or not receiving their full entitlement.
Determining the value of a business or an interest in a business can be extremely complex and typically requires careful investigation and analysis by financial experts. At the Peter D. Eberlie Law Firm, we work closely with experienced business valuation professionals to obtain accurate and detailed valuations that stand up in Court.
To obtain a proper valuation, we need to investigate:
- Spousal interests in the business
- The company’s structure and finances
- The company’s industry and competitive situation
- One or both spouses’ income from the business
- The company’s growth in value during marriage
