One of the Most Ridiculous Divorce Cases

The Lawsuit over $34.84 in Canadian Tire Money

During a marriage couples almost always blend their assets. One type of asset that usually receives less attention in divorce proceedings is loyalty points accumulated through household shopping. However, for every rule, there is always an exception, and some jilted couples are bitter enough to sue over the matter.



Nikolaev v Fakhredinov2015 ONSC 6267, takes the award for Canada’s most vindictive divorce judgment. Among the many items listed for judicial apportionment, “[t]he parties could not settle a difference of $34.84 concerning the value of the Canadian Tire account” (para, 92). Unsurprisingly, the lawyer’s fee for settling the dispute was well above $34/hour. The judge ended up splitting the amount down the middle and probably had a good laugh in his chambers afterward.
