Division Of Property

Upon separation, married spouses are entitled to an equalization of their net family property. This means that they are entitled, not to the division of the property itself, but to the equalization of the value of the property. The process involves the application of a specific calculation which is set out in detail in the Family Law Act known as the equalization of net family property.

Equalization of net family property results in one spouse (the one with the greater net family property) owing the other spouse a debt (equalization payment). It’s important to note that an equalization payment may amount to more or less than half of the other spouse’s total assets.

When calculating net family property, the value of all types of ‘property’ is included in the calculation: land, buildings, bank accounts, businesses, stock, stock options, pensions’ accounts receivable etc.

Application of the principles governing equalization of net family property can be complex, and subject to many variables which can have a significant impact on the bottom line. When it comes to property division, it pays to consult a lawyer and Kain & Ball is the logical choice based on our extensive experience.

Unlike married spouses, unmarried spouses do not have the automatic right to equalization of net family property under the Family Law Act. This is not to say, however that unmarried spouses do not have any property rights. The extent to which persons who are not married may assert a claim against each other with respect to property varies widely depending on the circumstances relating to their relationship and the property in question. At Kain & Ball, we have dealt with numerous cases involving the property rights of unmarried spouses. Our legal team is familiar with the complex issues that arise in these kinds of cases, and we are ready to assist you.

ClientVery Impressed

"A very professional firm with a proven balance of “downtown prestige” “uptown convenience and
personal service” and “hometown compassion”."

ClientVery Professional

"…There is [a quote] that I often read which I believe Anita exemplifies in all that she does, and from what I have experienced in the past year, it is infused throughout every aspect of your office and each member of the team carries this same motto inherently in how you engage with your clients, and each other... whether dealing with the financial, bureaucratic or emotional content, there is humanity in all that you do. I am grateful to each and every one of you. “To be the best we can is our sacred human responsibility” - Albert Einstein "

ClientBest Experience

"I always felt like you heard me, and I am so thankful."

ClientThankful

"Anita and her very professional team were always compassionate-- their effective approach focuses on the human element first—“family-children-people”. [The priority] first and foremost at Kain & Ball [is] the client: respecting specific needs during a sensitive and important transition time in one’s life."

ClientCompassionate Team

"…No doubt you see some pretty nasty things in this business, and yet you never seem to let this cloud your commitment to treating each client with respect and individuality for their own specific circumstance."

ClientTreated With Respect

“Ms. Kain and her team were unbelievably helpful through a very difficult time. I always felt that they had my best interest at the forefront, and gave excellent advice accordingly. Their continued familiarity with my case was always surprising to me, given that I am far from their only client. This certainly made me feel that my case was a priority and of importance. Ms. Kain's expertise and commitment to her clients is unparalleled and I would recommend her and her team of professionals in a heartbeat.”

ClientUnbelievably Helpful

"Given the nature of family law, when people come to your office they are vulnerable and in a state of flux. For me, your entire team came together to help me navigate an extremely challenging and emotionally charged ordeal with insight and clarity. What has been most poignant for me is not merely the level of expertise offered by your office, but far more importantly, the compassion, integrity and care with which every single detail is carried out. No matter how busy you are, you always show tremendous respect for the fact that you are dealing with human beings... and while you for each of you this is your job, you recognize almost intrinsically that for us, as your clients, this is our life."

ClientFocused On Every Single Detail

"In my occupation as a medical professional, my role is to help people who are often in the most difficult situation of their lives. When I needed legal help from a family law expert at a truly difficult time in my life, Anita Kain and her team were there for me in a similar way. I will be forever grateful for their professional, thorough and compassionate assistance in successfully navigating what can be a frustrating and trying process. I cannot recommend them highly enough."

ClientHighly Recommended

"I was amazed at the rapid response rate of the team... honestly, there are not many people (or offices) that have such a quick turn-around time for ongoing questions of their clients. And I know how busy you all are, though you never once made me feel like you were too busy to attend to my questions; in fact, you made me feel as if I was your only client in each and every one of our interactions. For such a large team, that is truly remarkable."

ClientRapid Response

"It is so evident to me that every single person at Kain Family Law works with passion, and a true commitment to be the best they can be to their clients."

ClientPassionate

"I have known Anita for over 30 years now, her professionalism, her tenacity and her caring for her clients are simply the best… 3 years ago, I had the opportunity to use Anita’s services and they were second to none."

ClientSimply The Best

"I am so flooded with gratitude, not for the outcome (and not for the knowledge I have earned about the legal system... which I hope to never need to use again), but for the process we took to get there, that I could write a novel attempting to express my gratitude... but the words would undoubtedly get redundant."
