Are your clients going through a separation or divorce?

The CBA’s National Family Law Section developed the Tax Matters Toolkit with Justice Canada, the Canada Revenue Agency and Finance Canada. The toolkit is available online and helps family law lawyers and their clients understand how tax rules can affect their finances on separation or divorce.

Two resources are available:

1. Information to provide to clients (.pdf)

Law. You. Check it out.

Most people face certain situations in life – getting into or out of a relationship; buying, selling or renting a house; entering contracts; the death of a loved one. Over 3 years, 45% of Canadians will experience a problem that requires a legal solution. To help Canadians prevent and better manage legal issues that could otherwise be expensive, time consuming and stressful, we launched 6 Legal Health Checks on subjects such as legal wellness, everyday law/prevention, buying a house, breaking up and starting your first job.
