Property Claims of Common Law Spouses

Deciding Who Receives What In A Common Law Relationship


Property within Common Law separations is not divided the same way as it is for married spouses. In fact, among Common Law spouses there are no equalization payments, but rather the ability to file trust claims. Trust claims allow an individual to seek a payment from their spouse for remuneration for contributions to property that the spouse owns.
