TFSA factor in divorce
  • TFSA – you don’t become the asset co-owner automatically.

  • If you had a TFSA before the marriage, your date of marriage deduction will increase, decreasing the value of your net family property.

  • No matter which partner’s name is listed as the account owner, the TFSA is a matrimonial asset that is to be equalized.

  • Be mindful that not all separations result in the equalization of TFSA assets.
