Saskatchewan Court of Appeal

Brownridge, Tallis and Cameron, JJ.A.

Summary:

In a divorce action the trial judge invoked s. 22 of the Married Women's Property Act and made an unequal distribution of property between the husband and wife (see paragraph 12). The judgment of the trial judge is not reported in this series of reports. The wife appealed to the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal.

The Saskatchewan Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal.

Family Law - Topic 864

Husband and wife - Property rights arising from marriage, distribution orders - Married Women's Property Act, s. 22 - The Saskatchewan Court of Appeal referred to a trial judge's broad discretion under s. 22 and affirmed a property distribution of $96,500.00 in favour of the wife and $70,100.00 in favour of the husband (see paragraph 12).

Family Law - Topic 870

Husband and wife - Property rights arising from marriage - Distribution orders, appeals - The Saskatchewan Court of Appeal stated that a distribution order made under s. 22 of the Married Women's Property Act should not be disturbed on appeal unless the trial judge acted on some wrong principle or misconceived or overlooked material evidence (see paragraph 29).
