When married spouses separate, the Family Law Act calls for an equalization of the spouses respective net family property so that an equitable distribution of the marital assets can be achieved. In order to calculate the equalization payment, a valuation date (often referred to as date of separation) must be established.

The valuation date is defined as the earliest of the following dates:

  • The date the spouses separate and there is no reasonable prospect that they will resume cohabitation;
  • The date a divorce is granted;
  • The date the marriage is declared a nullity;
  • The date one of the spouses commences an application based on subsection 5 (3) (improvident depletion) that is subsequently granted.
  • The date before the date on which one of the spouses dies leaving the other spouse surviving.

Equalization Agreement Terms in Richmond Hill

Once the valuation date is established, the parties must identify the relevant property that is to be included and excluded from the net family property and equalization calculation.

The parties must prepare Financial Statements and Net Family Property Statements that detail all Richmond Hill assets and liabilities on the date of marriage, the valuation date, and as of the date of the statement.
