Division of assets
When going through a divorce, it’s important that you understand the effects on your assets and debts. In Ontario there is law called “Family Law Act” which focuses heavily upon leaving both parties with equal footing after they divide up all property belonging together including loans or other financial obligations owed by either spouse before starting this process of subtraction (from anything not joint).
The division of property involves determining the net family assets. This means that each spouse must determine their own assets and debts, although most items acquired before or during marriage will be included in total as part of “Net Family Property (NFP).”
Items that are excluded from an NFP are:
Property both spouses have agreed to exclude (usually in a prenuptial agreement).
Property, including money from an inheritance (provided the money wasn’t transferred to a joint account or investment).
Damages for personal injuries, mental distress or loss of guidance.
Portions of a life insurance policy that continues after separation.
Once your Net Family Property is settled, the spouse with the higher value NFP is required to pay an amount that will equalize the values. For example, if one spouse is worth $300,000 while another is worth $50,000, the previous spouse will make a $125,000 equalization payment. This ensures both spouses are equally valued at $175,000.
There are exceptions to the equalization rule. If one spouse, for example, incurred an unreasonable portion of debts during the marriage, or hid debts that existed prior to the marriage, an appropriate exception will be made. Support from experienced divorce lawyer in Windsor is helpful during every step of the NFP.
