When you seek expediency, privacy and a just result, we can offer you the legal advice and alternatives to court that will work for you.
Retirement Benefits · Business Assets
Business assets and retirement benefits are considered matrimonial property and, therefore, subject to property division legislation in Alberta. However, establishing the value of these assets may be problematic. Shares in a company, for example, may fluctuate in value. Private pensions may be subject to specific rules and Canada Pension Plan (CPP) benefits, although they are normally divided equally, may be allocated to one spouse only by agreement.
