Matrimonial Home Asset Division

While most property and assets are split evenly during the division of assets, matrimonial homes can be treated differently during divorce. If you and your spouse are separating, contact an experienced family lawyer to better navigate more complicated division of assets cases like the matrimonial home. 

At Karrass Law, our team of family lawyers and civil litigation lawyers specialize in the complex division of assets. Our expertise ensures you get what you’re rightfully entitled to. 


What is the Matrimonial Home?

Matrimonial homes are properties that a married couple owns or resides in during the course of the marriage. Both spouses don’t have to be the legal owners of the property for the residence; your matrimonial home is just the property that both spouses reside in on the date of separation. Because these homes typically hold significant financial and sentimental value, their division often becomes contentious and challenging in divorce proceedings. 

The matrimonial home is a special property category in Ontario, and as such, it has important legal protections and implications in the event of separation. If you’re in the process of dividing your assets, contact our family lawyers in Ontario at Karrass Law. We will provide better insight into your legal rights to the matrimonial home and will help you fight for what you deserve.

Factors that Affect the Division of Your Home

In Ontario, both spouses have a legal claim to the matrimonial home regardless of ownership status or how it was acquired. However, there are some exceptions to this rule that you can navigate expertly with the esteemed civil litigation lawyers and family law experts at Karrass Law.
