Renouncing the Sharing of the Parental Union Regime

The Parental Union Regime concerns couples who are parents of one or more common children, but who are not married.

Thus, this regime would automatically apply to de facto spouses (non-married and non-civill- united) who are the parents of common children born after June 30, 2025. This regime would also include parents of children adopted after this date.

The parental union regime arises from Bill No. 56 relating to the reform of family law in Quebec, and establishing the parental union regime supported by the Minister of Justice of Quebec Simon Jolin-Barrette.

    Constitution of family patrimony

    The formation of this parental union would result in the creation of the family patrimony which consists of the following assets:

    • The family residence,
    • The furniture of the family residence,
    • The vehicles used by the family.

    It should be noted that modifications to this bill could occur during the upcoming special consultations in the parliamentary committee. namely regarding the used terminology.

    Furthermore, the components of family patrimony for unmarried couples who are parents of common children are fewer than those of family patrimony for married couples.

    For married couples, the pension plans and the family secondary residences are also included in the family patrimony, plus the three items above, while for unmarried couples who are parents of common children, it is only about the main family residence, the furniture, and the family vehicles.
