Pickering Divorce

Pickering Divorce - Property rights are decided during divorce proceedings in Part 1 and Part II or otherwise known as the Family Law Act. The home's value and the dividing of those assets is specifically dealt with by Part II, while Part 1 focuses on the rest of the property. Just those who have entered into a legal marriage are entitled to take advantage of these laws. Couples of the same sex who are lawfully married are also part of this grouping.

Property which has been accrued during the marriage is the only property that is qualified to be divided. "Equalization" is the method which is utilized to divide the values evenly amongst the spouses. Through this process, the value for each and every person's net family property is calculated. The spouse with the lower net family property value gets half of the difference between their net family properties.

In this case, the term "property" refers to something bought by the person in addition to all the registered objects. In the case where something is registered under both spouse's names, the value is divided evenly between the two.

It is typically up to the spouses to determine who receives the kitchen appliances and furniture. To have to lawyers determine who must get what would cost a lot more then the price of the furniture itself.
