if i live together with my girlfriend, would she be righted to take half of my wealth if we break up? she has her mails sent to our place, and its been over 1 year, and im sure our landlord can be a witness.
HelloThis may depend on which province you live in. Where do you live?

No, there is no automatic right to property division with a common law spousal relationship in BC. It is not the same legally as being married. If she could prove that she made actual contributions to your assets or to improving or maintaining your assets, she could have a claim, but it would be limited to the value of those contributions, and not an automatic 50 per cent.
