Marriage Separation Lawyers

Marriage Separation Lawyers

When life takes an unexpected turn and separation or divorce is on the horizon, many concerns arise. One of the biggest concerns is often how assets and debts will be shared between spouses. In Quebec, provincial legislation provides for different matrimonial regimes, and at Avocats de famille, we’re here to guide you through this complex process.


Matrimonial regimes in Quebec

In Quebec, there are three main types of matrimonial regimes:

Partnership of acquests

Under this regime, certain assets acquired during the marriage are considered as private property, while others are considered as acquests, i.e. shared assets. When the marriage is dissolved, each spouse keeps his or her own property, but acquests are shared equally.

Separation of property

Under this regime, there is no automatic division of assets acquired during the marriage. Each spouse retains ownership of what he or she has acquired, whether property or debt.

Community of property

Although less common in Quebec, this regime means that all property, whether acquired before or during the marriage, is considered joint property and is divided equally between the spouses upon dissolution of the marriage.

Why is it essential to understand your matrimonial regime?

Knowing and understanding your matrimonial property regime is crucial, as it determines how your assets will be divided in the event of separation or divorce. Each plan has its own nuances and may have different implications for your financial situation.
