Family patrimony includes assets accumulated by spouses during marriage or civil union. This includes, among other things, family residences, vehicles used by the family, household furniture, accumulated pension plans and rights resulting from an annuity plan.

Quebec law aims to share the family patrimony equitably between the spouses. This means that the value of the assets included in the patrimony is divided equally. A divorce lawyer can help you navigate this process to ensure a fair division.
