    Agreed. All jewellery should belong/be given to each spouse. Any attained during marriage would be subject to equalization if any value increase.

    Unfortunately that's not the way it works. My stbx said he would buy me out of the house. I left/moved. I cannot get any of the mat property right now (only my personal items) until it is determined through the equalization process. He will have to pay me for half of the value, or we agreeably divide the mat property. Thank god for family/friends...they have furnished my lease. The way this is going it will probably be 2 years before it's finished in its entirety.

    As long as property is not sold or transferred, why should it make a diff who is storing it prior to matrimonial property settlement.
    See above...It's an impact to the partner who moved out and has no furnishings. Then it will be determined whether or not the other buys out your half of the value of the assets, or you can split amicably. In my situation my stbx has said he will give me nothing from the house.

      Did you not record them in your financial statement. I had to So they have a record of what I had. The value of course was alot lower than it was when purchased though.

        How do you find out all the stuff he is hiding in his financial statement. I am at a loss and don't know how to that, plus don't know how to move around properly on this site.

          When it came to all the items in the house I took my camera and shot pics throughout the whole house before I left. I knew he would sell whatever he could and sure enough he did. Did I see any of that money...nope. The only things I took from that house were, a bedroom set, a living room set, some sheets, towels, face cloths, coffee and end tables, some dishes and cutlery. I left him everything else. He also had a bedroom set, the kitchen set, the buffet and hutch, TV and entertainment centre, coffee and end tables, lamps, picture stand, the furniture in the other spare bedroom, desk, pantry, pots, pans, all the china in the hutch, ect. Now here's the kicker, his lawyer said in a brief to mine..."my client had to empty the house of all the furniture he couldn't take with him and had to clean the house alone for the closing date on July 1, 2011. I cleaned that house up and down for the last 34 years and he complained because he had to do it alone. Incredible!!! :-)
          Oh well, I alone, have a new apartment by the water...the St. Lawrence is in my backyard. I'm happy now, free, and life is good....for now ;-)

            He did not list his 'jewellery/watches' in his financial statement. I will list mine but I will put them down as gifts (as they all were). If he can prove an increase of value (he has the original appraisals for a couple of the items) to today...then I will have to give him half of the increase.

            He has bank accounts that he has indicated are joint, and the numbers are not our accounts and neither are the supposed balances !

            Lorac-I wish I had of taken pictures or video. I will when I can get in there to get my clothes with my witness. And why didn't you continue to go in and clean for him ? You are so neglectful ! (ha)... I got a phonecall after I was out for 1 month, yelling at me asking me when I was going to go there to wash the kids clothes for when he has them !

            Free life is priceless...
