In stark contrast to parenting issues, there are property law matters, although always a division of assets must be just and equitable.
The law takes into account all assets and liabilities of each of the parties and their income and financial resources. The court will also look at the contributions made by each of the parties to the relationship, whether that contribution was strictly financial or whether it was non-financial for instance in the role of homemaker and parent or through building and constructing the family home, operating a farm perhaps, or managing the family business.
The future needs of the parties are also taken into account as is a reasonable standard of living.
