Embarking on a divorce journey can be daunting, but arming yourself with the right information is key. In Canada, before taking this significant step, consider a few crucial to-dos:

  1. Financial Documentation: Gather records of your assets, debts, income, and expenses. Having a clear financial picture is fundamental for fair division.
  2. Legal Grounds: Familiarize yourself with the legal grounds for separation and divorce in your jurisdiction. Being informed empowers you to make decisions aligned with the law.
  3. Spousal Support: Understand spousal support. Factors such as the length of the marriage, financial need, and financial consequences arising from the care of children may influence these arangements.
  4. Property Division: Learn about the rules governing the division of family property. Alberta generally follows the principle of equal division, but nuances exist, particularly concerning excluded assets.
    Navigating a divorce is complex, but with the right knowledge and support, you can make informed decisions that matter.
