48 - The COVID19 Family Law Property SCAM

Even with the Family Courts mostly closed during the pandmeic, and the economy struggling, spouses are  making legal claims to try to get ALL of what their ex has left.  This actually is not a concern unique to COVID19, it is also a concern whenever the economy takes a downturn. But, these times do allow a spouse to take advantage of the laws that apply to property division in divorce to get everything, or almost everything that their spouse has. The episode of the Ontario Family Law Podcast explains how this happens and how to avoid it as often it really is a SCAM. Married spouses must listen to this podcast to know how these troubling times have impacted what happens when separating in Ontario.
