Family Law Act Overview – First Nations – Division of Family Home

First Nation individuals have laws protecting the division of assets but other BC citizens do not. I know because I lost everything. I haven`t included everything in the excerpt below so please read the full document for more information. Click here to read the full document or an excerpt below.

To dispose of or encumber
the family home
S. 15-
• Spouse or common-law partner must obtain both the:
• free
• informed

consent of their spouse or common-law partner in
writing to dispose or encumber the family home.
• A spouse that wishes to dispose of or encumber the
family home has the burden of proving they obtained the
required consent as set out above.

If consent not properly obtained
• Court may set aside the transaction
• May not be set aside if third party acquired it
for value and acted in good faith.
