    Gifts and Inheritances and Net Family Property

    In Ontario, the Family Law Act excludes certain property from the net family property calculation. Net family property is the value of each spouse’s property, after deducting debts and liabilities at the time of separation, and then deducting the value of assets brought into the marriage (other than the matrimonial home). 


    The value of each spouse’s net family property will be calculated and then compared to determine whether an equalization payment needs to be made. Generally, a spouse should receive half of the overall net family property in addition to their excluded property.

    Family Law and Private Arbitration

    Over the last 20 years, legislation has been introduced across Canada to allow spouses to resolve family law disputes using private arbitration as an alternative to the court process.


    Arbitration is a voluntary agreement between spouses to appoint a private arbitrator to settle issues related to division of property, spousal support and child support. The arbitrator will then make a final decision that is binding on both parties.

    How Long Does Child and Spousal Support Last?

    Child Support:

    Under Canadian family law, every parent has to provide financial support for children who are under their control and still dependent on them for their care. The general rule is that children over the age of 18 and who are working, are independent, and therefore do not need support. Where children are enrolled in full-time studies, the time it takes for them to achieve independence from their parents can be later, in which case, support will continue until about the age of 23 or later, depending on the child’s field of study.

    Foreign Property and Family Law in Canada

    With greater ease of movement across borders, it is not uncommon for people to own property in different countries at the time of their separation or divorce. This often creates a problem because the law in Canada requires that family property be divided equally, but Canadian courts have no jurisdiction over land situated in a foreign country. The failure to take account of foreign property often results to an unequal division of family property.


    In order to address this problem, Canadian courts have ordered that the owner of foreign assets must sell the foreign property and that the proceeds of sale be used to honour their obligations for equal division of property in Canada.
