Property Division & Family Assets Resources

After a couple decides to divorce, they must decide how to share their property and other assets. They each have the right to continue living in the home they have shared, regardless of whose name is on the lease or deeds. This can include the home itself, furniture, contents, pensions, RRSPs, investments, bank account, cash and pets.

If the couple were not married, they should share any possessions they own, yet they can keep their own money and property. Under certain circumstances, a common-law spouse (a couple who lives together as if they were married) may be able to claim a share of their spouse’s property.
