Divorce Property Division of Assets
The property regime established by Part 1 of the Family Law Act is referred to as a deferred community property regime. This means that all property acquired during the course of the marriage by either party, with some exceptions, by the spouses (either together or separately) is considered to be the property of both spouses, notwithstanding legal title.
This means that when a marriage breaks down, each spouse is entitled to one half of the total value of the combined assets of both spouses. We are also able to provide you these answers to you quickly and accurately, ensuring you’re not left wondering about your case.
Division of Assets
To aid in the division of assets and property distribution, the Family Law Act has introduced the concepts of “net family property,” “equalization,” and “equalization payment.” For each spouse, a net family property must be calculated.
This is done by totaling the value of all assets owned by that spouse on the valuation date (commonly referred to as the separation date or date of separation) , whether solely or jointly, and deducting all liabilities that were in existence on the valuation date*. Once the net family property is determined for each spouse, they are compared and equalized, so each party leaves the marriage with an equal amount of assets.
