Family property includes everything you own, your spouse owns or you own jointly on the date of separation. There is a presumption that family property is to be shared although it is not always shared equally and is subject to certain exclusions. Exclusions can include inheritances, the value of property you owned on the date of marriage and gifts. It is important your family law team understands the complex property division to help you navigate equalization. Family property includes things like bank accounts, investments, art, jewellery, property, insurance policies, pensions and business interests.
