Matrimonial Property Act

Who can apply for the Matrimonial Property Act (MPA) in Alberta?
  • It only applies to spouses residing in Alberta
  • The MPA only applies to married couples
  • You can request a Judge to apply the rules of the MPA when you are separated or divorced (time limits do apply for the MPA)

Separated Spouse:
  • If you are separated from your spouse, but not yet divorced, you must start the action within two (2) years of the date of separation or else you must also start divorce proceedings.

Divorced Spouse:
  • You must start the action within two (2) years of the date of the Divorce Judgment.

Spouse selling property to third party to avoid the rules of the MPA:
  • If you feel the matrimonial property is being sold or given away to avoid the rules of MPA, you must start the action within one (1) year of the date your spouse sold or gave the property away.

When your spouse dies:
  • When your spouse dies and have been separated less than two years, you must start your action within six (6) months of the grant of probate or administration of the estate, but only if you could have started the action immediately before your spouse's death.

If you think some of these time limits may apply to you, talk to a lawyer that practice Family Law or Wills and Estate Law where applicable to your concerns. 

Lawyer Referral:  You can request three (3) lawyers to obtain 1/2 hour free consultation from each of them, if you have any questions or concerns.

The rate of the divorce is going to high and the reason is that the couple did not create the mutual understanding and did not try to make the bond so strong. Well, you give the information about the property problems about the divorce and it is good.

In this act, " matrimonial home" means the dwelling and real property occupied by a person and that person's spouse as their family residence and in which either or both of them property interest other than a leasehold interest. These are the things I learned while reading this blog. Practicing this act is concerned with both adjoining parties with the interest of equal distribution. This has so much information and reading this made me understand the concepts concerning with the matrimonial property act.
