    Lorrie Stojni, B.A., M.A., LL.B. said:

    In the event of a separation, the division of proprety is governed by the Family Law Act in Ontario. The value of your assets and debts as of the date of marriage are taken into account, but are not excluded unless the exclusion provisions of the FLA apply or you have a Marriage Contract in place. I encourage you to seek legal counsel in your area.
