separation agreement

So the basic idea is that, under section 5(1) of the Ontario Family Law Act, when a married couple gets a divorce (or through a court order declaring the marriage a nullity) or is separated and there is no reasonable prospect that they will resume cohabitation, then their NET FAMILY PROPERTY is divided in half. OK so what is NET FAMILY PROPERTY and how do you calculate it? That’s where this blog comes into play.

In this blog, I’ll be talking about how to deal with common law breakups through a separation agreement. It can be better than going to court (because it saves the parties time, money, and allows them to control the outcome). Remember: if you are cohabiting or planning on cohabiting with someone and don’t have a Cohabitation Agreement that deals with separation, then you’ll either need to try to negotiate a separation agreement or have the court determine what your rights are with respect to ownership and division of property, child and spousal support, etc.
