Division of property
Domestic relationships, including marriages and common law commitments, are largely viewed by the law as economic arrangements. Every long-term relationship has financial consequences, which are particularly evident when the relationship ends. Property gained during a relationship must be divided by law when the couple separates; the law that applies, however, varies depending on whether the couple was legally married at the time of the separation. Calgary families trust the services of Castle & Associates, a law firm with the knowledge, experience and legal skill to help you understand your legal rights and to advocate for your legal interests.
Couples Affected By Property Division Law
Unmarried couples can make a claim at common law on property gained during the relationship. Married couples have the right, by law, to an equal share of matrimonial property. Establishing what constitutes matrimonial property, however, is not always straightforward. A lawyer can properly present your case to a decision-maker based on in-depth knowledge of the facts surrounding matrimonial property and its division.
