Property Laws

I Don’t Know How Property Division Works and I’m Worried We Will Lose My Home

Some couples can come to an agreement about who keeps the matrimonial home. Often times they can’t and the ensuing property division battle can be heated and ugly.

Our firm has helped countless Newmarket divorce clients (Barrie too) keep their homes, cottages and investment properties or come to a fair resolution of this thorny issue. 

What is Property Equalization? Is it Fair?

Equalization is basically the process of determining the fair market value of assets, such as:

  • Homes 
  • Cottages 
  • Investment 
  • Properties 
  • Family-owned businesses 
  • Stock / share options 
  • Antiques or heirlooms 

We offer a full team of experts in this field, to make sure your rights and interests are protected. Even when both parties seem miles apart, we help our clients achieve favourable outcomes. Learn more about how equalization works.
