The new Family Property Act specifies when unmarried couples will be deemed to be in a ‘common law’ relationship and how the couples’ property will be divided if the relationship ends.

As of Jan 1, 2020, common law couples will be entitled to an equal division of property in the same way married couples are.

Great experience working with Abram. Professional and thoughtful with good insights.
Relaxed and to the point team. Helped me when I panicked to stay calm and then walked me through things. Really friendly and always available
Very satisfied with the services provided by the lawyers at SVR Lawyers! It was a long and convoluted divorce process, but Abram Averbach, Cindy Lee and their assistants have helped me to navigate through it and finalize it. I highly recommend them!
