Client handout written by myself and Marla Miller, QC. Meant to help address many of the common problems spouses run into when they initially separate (e.g. who lives in the house, how is furniture divided, when to change insurance designations)

The parenting article that it refers to can be found here.

This document was prepared for LESA's "Advising Small & Family Businesses" Seminar in Edmonton on Feb. 6, 2019 and in Calgary Feb. 13, 2019. I don't post my presentation slides on this website though, for those you need to attend the seminar. My portion of the seminar will cover:
  1. Quick overview of family law

  2. Overview of the new common law property legislation

  3. Methods of apportioning business interests after a separation

  4. Effect of USAs, trusts, pre-nups, holdcos, gifts, family loans, estate planning

  5. Changing business structures after a separation

  6. Concurrent civil/corporate and family claims

  7. How non-family-law lawyers can help with the separation process

  8. How family law affects estates

I hope to see some of you there!
