There is an assumption in Alberta that matrimonial property will be equally divided between the parties upon separation or divorce. In reality, dividing the property is not a simple process, particularly where there any many assets and debts that have accumulated throughout the marriage. Determining what is and isn’t actual ‘matrimonial property’ can be difficult and often legal advice on identifying the property to be divided will be required. We can advise you on the legislation that governs the division of matrimonial property and how it applies to your scenario. There are time limits on making a matrimonial property claim under the legislation so it is highly important that you receive legal advice on your rights, liabilities and time constraints as soon as possible.
