Property division rules for separated British Columbia couples

How property is divided during separation or divorce depends upon actions taken by British Columbia couples or a court. You and a spouse, who under the Family Law Act may include a common-law partner, can draft a legal agreement spelling out how property is divided. Terms may be defined in a cohabitation agreement, marriage or prenuptial agreement or a separation agreement.

Learning sessions teach parents separation lessons

You may attend a special education session about separation if you plan to take a disagreement over parenting to court. Attendance is not an option for Parenting After Separation sessions in some British Columbia communities. The relationship status of the parents is immaterial – family legal issues may be with a former live-in partner, an ex-spouse or a parent who never shared your home.
