What province are you in please?

Do you have any assets that you hold in your name and your former spouse's name as well?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I live in Ontario. I do not have any assets with my ex wife
Expert:  Legal Ease replied 10 months ago.

You don't need a divorce.

The time has long, long passed for your former spouse to seek a division of assets.

She has no claim to your assets or your estate.

Let me know if you need any further clarification.
